I currently manage a FAS2240-2 and prior to putting this into production I went through and upgraded both controllers to the latest firmware of IOM6E and IOM3. My current versions as per sysconfig -a of IOM6E are attached. SO can somebody tell me why Autosupport is still reporting this as being out of date. I dont like it when risks are shown.
Cheers fellow Storage Peops.
Got off the phone from Netapp Tech Support today. They informed me that this is a known issue on the FAS2240-2. They instructed me that a reboot and a manual "options autosupport.doit test" solves the issue. I have today after much pain with iSCSI multipathing troubleshooting, rebooted my controllers. I will check tomorrow and let you know whether this has cleared the messages in autosupport online.
I'm going to test this
Because in fact our FAS2240-4 is in service for 2 months now, and we noticed the autosupport warning warning for 2 weeks
after the warning disappeared ,and it is now back since 3 weeks after a reboot.
So we will try to find a window to make another reboot
Thanks for sharing information
ACP firmware on the internal SAS expander IOM6E cannot be updated using the 'storage download acp' command as it is part of the SP. updating SP firmware might help. See this KB for details: https://kb.netapp.com/support/index?page=content&id=2017183
Also, because ACP is used as an alternate path for control commands, not data transfers, it is not a critically-important component. Hence having the firmware a little out of date may not be a major issue.
