This micro release contains significant bug fixes for all supported platforms. Please carefully review the list of CRs that have been addressed and all release notes below prior to upgrading.
This release contains SAS-2 HBA and SAS-2 Disk Shelf Log Device firmware updates for SAS-2 based 7310, 7310C, 7410 and 7410C appliances and all 7120, 7320, 7320C, 7420, 7420C and 7720 appliances. The SAS-2 HBA and the SAS-2 Disk Shelf Log Device firmware will be eligible for firmware updates during the first boot of the appliance after upgrading to this release. The firmware updates are summarized in the following table:
|Device||Vendor||Product ID||Description||Old Firmware Version||New Firmware Version|
|SAS-2 HBA||Sun Microsystems, Inc.||Dual 4x6Gb External SAS-2 HBA||Dual Port SAS-2 HBA||1.09.02||1.09.03|
|SAS-2 Log Device||STEC||ZeusIOPs||18GB SAS-2 Log Device||9002||9004|
The SAS-2 HBA firmware update will take approximately 1 minute per SAS-2 HBA. Each SAS-2 Disk Shelf Log Device will take approximately 1 minute to update the firmware. The total firmware update time is dependent on the number of devices being updated. For example, an appliance with 12 SAS-2 Disk Shelves and 16 Log Devices may take 16 minutes to upgrade the firmware. Upgrades may also take longer when the appliance is under load. It is important that customers postpone administrative operations such as cluster failback, reboot, or power down until the system has updated all device firmware. For more information on firmware updates and information on how to monitor them following the first boot after upgrade, refer to the Maintenance:System:Updates Hardware Firmware Updates section of the Customer Service Manual or online help.
This release requires appliances to be running the 2010.Q3.2.1 micro release prior to upgrading to this release. In addition, this release includes upgrade healthchecks that are performed automatically when an upgrade is started prior to the actual upgrade from the prerequisite 2010.Q3.2.1 micro release. If an upgrade healthcheck fails it can cause an upgrade to abort. The upgrade healthchecks help to ensure component issues that may impact an upgrade are addressed. Release specific documentation is provided below to help with upgrades and upgrade healthchecks. Please carefully review it prior to performing an upgrade to 2010.Q3.3.1. It is important to resolve all hardware component issues prior to performing an upgrade.
