Re: VNX replace firt 4 disk and reimage.

it is possible to recover the boot image on a storage processor . you should first know the recover procedure. then in a way you have to boot minisetup and startup UP next install OS recover images, upload the recover image to the storage system the sellecting that image to recover the to Recover OS and finally installing the image on the storage processor

Re: VNX replace firt 4 disk and reimage.

This is a service operation

if you are a qualified service partner you have access to the documentation and tools

if not and you are using some old internal docs from dubious websites than you do this at your own risk

Re: VNX replace firt 4 disk and reimage.

I do not understand why in the technical forum, when solving technical questions, to give answers about the service contract and the service center? we discuss the procedure how to recover.

i have a case to repair VNXe 3100.

Where is Disk 3?

We have no user data and can do anything (not to buy new disk). Can i remove faulty drive Disk 3, take any disk at the end of disk line and try to reimage?

I tryed to make a reimage, but admin password not Password123#, i can not log in as admin.

service password is Ok, i can logon as service.

If i have a service password, can i reset password for admin user by a easy way without reimage?

How to diagnose a SN of faulty drive?

I dont know how to find a "Disk 3", because i dont know how we need to start a count - from "Disk 0" zero or from "Disk 1". Does anybody have a picture with disk locations of "12-Disk-DAE'?

I connected my PC (as usual) to the COM port (to each SP), and COM-USB adapter works good, i can logon as service and type a commands.

all disks have a blue lamp, but i see a error message (at COM port, at power on)
(...) - some usual lines
Press <F2> to enter setup.
