This procedure provides instructions to verify Oracle Flash Accelerator F640 PCIe Card v2 operation on the host for supported Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux operating systems. Verify Oracle Flash Accelerator F640 PCIe Card v2 and 6.4 TB NVMe SSD operation using Oracle Hardware Management Pack utility CLI tools.
Before You Begin
Verify that Oracle Hardware Management Pack is installed on the host.
For CLI command instructions, refer to Oracle Hardware Management Pack documentation at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ohmp/docs.
Ensure that you have access to the server (either directly or over the network).
Verify that the Fault-Service Action Required Oracle Flash Accelerator F640 PCIe Card v2 status indicator is not lit and that the green Power status indicator is lit on Oracle Flash Accelerator F640 PCIe Card v2s and 6.4 TB NVMe SSDs that you updated.
For detailed instructions, refer to the server installation guide. For example, to log in to the target system through SSH or through Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus, do one of the following:
Type: ssh root@hostname, where hostname can be the DNS name or the IP address for the server host.
Start an Oracle ILOM serial console session, type:
-> start /HOST/console
Are you sure you want to start /HOST/console (y/n)? y
To launch an Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus session, refer to Launching Remote KVMS Redirection Sessions in the server administration guide.
You issue Oracle Hardware Management Pack commands from the operating system command-line interface.
# fwupdate list controller ================================================== CONTROLLER ================================================== ID Type Manufacturer Model Product Name FW Version -------------------------------------------------------------------------- c0 NVMe Intel 0x0a54 7335943:ICDPC5ED2ORA6.4T 8DV1RZ06 c1 NVMe Intel 0x0a54 7335943:ICDPC5ED2ORA6.4T 8DV1RZ06 c10 SAS LSI Logic 0x00ce Avago MegaRAID SAS 9361-1 4.710.00- c12 NET Intel 0x1533 Intel(R) I210 Gigabit Net -
In the above example, Oracle F640 Flash Card controllers c0 and c1 are enumerated in the output returned by the above command.
To identify NVMe controllers and current firmware versions, type #nvmeadm list -v.
To identify NVMe controllers that have updated firmware, view the Firmware Revision row in the output from the nvmeadm list -v command.
In the following example, controllers SUNW-NVME-1 and SUNW-NVME-1 show firmware version 8DV1RZ06 in the output returned by the above command.
# nvmeadm list -v SUNW-NVME-1 PCI Vendor ID: 0x8086 Serial Number: PHLE713401RZ6P4BGN-1 Model Number: 7335943:ICDPC5ED2ORA6.4T Firmware Revision: 8DV1RZ06 Number of Namespaces: 1 SUNW-NVME-2 PCI Vendor ID: 0x8086 Serial Number: PHLE713401RZ6P4BGN-2 Model Number: 7335943:ICDPC5ED2ORA6.4T Firmware Revision: 8DV1RZ06 Number of Namespaces: 1 root:~#
To check the selected 6.4 TB NVMe SSD health and SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) information, type:
# nvmeadm getlog -h
Ensure that Oracle F640 Flash Cards have remaining drive life (Percentage Used) in the output returned by the above command.
# nvmeadm getlog -h F640-NVME-1 SMART/Health Information: Critical Warning: 0 Temperature: 312 Kelvin Available Spare: 100 percent Available Spare Threshold: 10 percent Percentage Used: 0 percent Data Unit Read: 0x1 of 512k bytes.
