Dell PERC H730/H730P/H830/FD33xS/FD33xD Mini/Adapter RAID Controllers firmware version 25.5.4.0006

Fixes & Enhancements

Fixes
-Changes default value of drive cache for 6 Gbps SATA drive to disabled. This is to align with the industry for SATA drives. This may result in a performance degradation especially in non-Raid mode. You must perform an AC reboot to see existing configurations change.
-Fixes an issue where a specific firmware FMU fault can lead to controller hangs for approximately 15 seconds. Search controller logs for the string "fusionMUErrorIsr: FMU Error Status 00040000".
-Fixes an issue where SATA drives could randomly return 04/44/00 check condition in a VSAN environment. Search the controller log for the string "Sense: 4/44/00". For example: "07/24/17 11:00:55: C0:EVT#8446014-07/24/17 11:00:55: 113=Unexpected sense: PD 02(e0x20/s2) Path 500056b3fafedac2, CDB: 9e 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 00 00, Sense: 4/44/00"
-Fixes an issue where you can see false multiple SRAM correctable errors that could result in performance problems or even in a server crash. Search tty log for the string "SRAM errAddr" or "Correctable err, continuing...". For example: "C0:SRAM errAddr c0023010 errAttrib 00000003" followed by "C0:Correctable err, continuing..."
-Fixes an issue where external enclosures sometimes lose time sync.
-Fixes an issue where a random RSOD could occur during boot only if there are multiple PERC controllers in the configuration.
-Fixes an issue where the battery could inadvertently change to WT during a transparent learn cycle.
-Fixes an issue where VD deletion and VD creation events are not seen in iDRAC LC log.
-Fixes an issue where sometimes controller fails to unlock and import multiple secure foreign configurations only if foreign VDs have different secured pass phrases.
