Equallogic Firmware – v5.1.1-H1

August 9, 2011 Leave a comment

Recently Dell Equallogic has released their newest firwmare 5.1.1 and it seems like this new firmware got some problems .

Basically users that had hard-drives with reported soft-errors stopped having access to those drives , and a spare process kicked in leading to performance drop and with one less available hard-drive.

To avoid some confusion the newest firmware is the 5.1.1-H1 (R187334) and the oldest one was the 5.1.1(R185010) .

If you have an Equallogic can you take a look to your current firmware by selecting within the Members tab , the Equallogic Member and select the “Maintenance” tab . You should see something like this :

As a side note…If you have this new firmware , within the SANHQ you may see some new attributes… 🙂

Have fun, and make sure you plan a maintenance window for any change on your environment, and that also includes any Equallogic firmware upgrade .
