i would like to re-configure the Host Interface Cards on my eseries controllers to iSCSI.
At the moment, HICs are configured for FC.
I have 2x of the following controllers in a dual controller config installed in a 5524 chassis:
Location: Tray 0, Slot A
Current Package Version: 08.20.11.00
Current NVSRAM Version: N5501-820834-DB5
Board ID: 5501
Sub-Model ID: 238
I am able to generate the HIC FC to iSCSI feature key file as per the procedure in the following doc:
Converting a Fibre Channel Host Interface Card to iSCSI
however the e5500 key generated is for Sub-Model ID 197 and is promptly rejected by santricity as the Sub-Model ID of my controllers reports as 238.
Sub-Model identifier of storage array: 238
Sub-Model Identifier contained in file: 197
please let me know how i can configure my controller SMID to 197 or generate a feature key for SMID 238.
A solution or any advice would be greatly apreciated.

Please call support and check if a controller replacement is needed to corrrect the SMID conflict.

thanks for the note.
out of interest, is there anyway to reset or change the SMID ?
Im interested to know here 238 came from.
