SPARC Servers Report NVMe Device Error When Using probe-nvme-all Command

Bug ID: 30067668

Issue: Oracle 6.4 TB NVMe SSD v2 storage drives with VDV1RL04 firmware that enables multiple namespaces generate a failure message when using the probe-nvme-all command at OBP to query NVMe drive information in SPARC Servers. This probe-nvme-all command issue does not cause any functional issues with the NVMe device.

The following screen shows a namespace error for Oracle 6.4 TB NVMe SSD v2. The list is formatted as ordered word sized entries of namespace ids, with a 0 termination.

Affected Hardware and Software: Oracle 6.4 TB NVMe SSD v2 storage drives with VDV1RL04 firmware on supported SPARC T7, S7, and T8 series servers. See Supported Servers and Operating Systems.

Workaround: Do not use probe-nvme-all at OBP to query drive information on SPARC servers with system firmware release 9.9.2 or earlier. Use nvmeadm commands in Solaris to query drive information.

Fix: Update SPARC servers to system firmware release 9.9.3 or later.
