Sun Cluster 3.0-3.1 With Sun StorEdge 6320 System Manual for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to Upgrade Storage Array Firmware

Use this procedure to upgrade storage array firmware in a running cluster. Storage array firmware includes controller firmware, unit interconnect card (UIC) firmware, EPROM firmware, and disk drive firmware.

Note –

When you upgrade firmware on a storage device or on an enclosure, redefine the stripe size of a LUN, or perform other LUN operations, a device ID might change unexpectedly. When you perform a check of the device ID configuration by running the scdidadm -c command, the following error message appears on your console if the device ID changed unexpectedly.

device id for nodename:/dev/rdsk/cXtYdZsN does not match physical 
device's id for ddecimalnumber, device may have been replaced.

To fix device IDs that report this error, run the scdidadm -R command for each affected device.

  1. Stop all I/O to the storage arrays you are upgrading.

  2. Apply the controller, disk drive, and loop-card firmware patches.

    For the list of required patches, see the Sun StorEdge 6320 System Reference and Service Manual. For the procedure about how to apply firmware patches, see the firmware patch README file. For the procedure about how to verify the firmware level, see the Sun StorEdge 6320 System Reference and Service Manual.

  3. Confirm that all storage arrays that you upgraded are visible to all nodes.

    # luxadm probe
  4. Restart all I/O to the storage arrays.

    You stopped I/O to these storage arrays in Step 1.
