E-Series array. 2540-M2 array. Ctrl with Sub-Model Identifier Not Set or Mismatched – L7 Code.

Hello everyone,

Basically We have an array 2540-M2 with dual controllers, one of them gets EO L7 code in the 7 segment display.


we've tried to clear 'held in reset status' using one of these commands run from the active controller without success:

 

setControllerToActive_MT 1
resetController_MT 1
altResetRelease
cmgrSetAltToOptimal

 

As you can see below at the beginning the state is Lockdown:

 

Primary Ctlr 0x2c84e50

But when we tried to run altResetRelease it seems Ctrl A (alternate) gets Optimal status:

But after a few minutes Ctrl A shows Lockdown status and 7 segment display as EO L7 again.
We've tried to replace this Controller twice as well without sucess either.

As far as I know the code EO L7 means Sub-Model Identifier Not Set or Mismatched but as you can see above in the cmgrShow command
the Submodel-ID is the same for both controllers (SubModel : 191)

 

Please, any advise/idea?

 

Thanks in advance,
Regards.

Re: E-Series array. 2540-M2 array. Ctrl with Sub-Model Identifier Not Set or Mismatched – L7 Code.

Hi there,

 

E-Series systems enter lockdown mode primarily to protect user data - therefore the best idea is to raise a support case if the system is under support. Is this applicable in this scenario?

 

Re: E-Series array. 2540-M2 array. Ctrl with Sub-Model Identifier Not Set or Mismatched – L7 Code.

Hi Alex,

 

unfortunatelly there is no valid Service Contract with NetApp for this Array.

So with the scenario provided ... Do you have any idea wht the Alternate Ctrl gets EO L7 code in the 7 segment display after apply

commands to clear held in reset situation? Mainly when cmgrShow commadn shows the Submodel-ID is the same for both controllers (SubModel : 191).

OE+L7 normally means the controllers sub-model is not matched so this is the main reason I don't understand this behaviour, Submodel is the same here.
The 7 segment display will only show one error but there can be more, in fact we have replaced the controller twice, rebooted the active controller with the faulty one removed but no sucess.

As far as i know to clear 'held in reset status' using one of these commands run from the active controller:

setControllerToActive_MT 1
resetController_MT 1
altResetRelease
cmgrSetAltToOptimal

But any of these commands didn't solvethis issue so far, PLease ... any idea?

Thank you,

REgards.

Re: E-Series array. 2540-M2 array. Ctrl with Sub-Model Identifier Not Set or Mismatched – L7 Code.

What is the history of this system?

 

Have you tried "lemClearLockdown"?

 

Please run shell command "getMfgSubModelId" and post response

Re: E-Series array. 2540-M2 array. Ctrl with Sub-Model Identifier Not Set or Mismatched – L7 Code.

HI Alex,

 

basically one Controller in this array got a lockdown status, we tried to release as I mentioned previously from Shell commands.

Custoemr wanted to replace hardware in order to isloate this scenario so Ctrl was replaced twice and recently Midplane was replacewd as well,

obviosly the situation is the same, alternate ctrl A is showing EO LU currently so we are thinking to apply this action  plan:

-- Log into the serial port of controller A that has the "LU" status.

When logged into the serial port, you will see...

 

Press within 5 seconds: <S> for Service Interface, <BREAK> for baud rate

----> Press ESC to get into the serial interface

 

login: shellUsr

Password:

->

Serial Port shell started.

 

 

-> loadDebug

-> lemClearLockdown

-> cmgrShow

Do you agree? Any other idea/advise?

 

Thank you,

Regards.

Re: E-Series array. 2540-M2 array. Ctrl with Sub-Model Identifier Not Set or Mismatched – L7 Code.

Sounds like a good start - when you get into the shell please run the "getMfgSubModelId" command - you may have received a functionally similar part from another subvendor, which is not modifiable in the field Smiley Sad

Re: E-Series array. 2540-M2 array. Ctrl with Sub-Model Identifier Not Set or Mismatched – L7 Code.

Hi Alex,

 

first of all, thank you for your replies and support, I'll collect this command output tonight when we will apply

the action plan mentioned before.

 

So ... Are you thinking the SubModel-ID are still different? This command getMfgSubModelId is to get information abolut SubModelId?

But I can see the SubModel-ID seems equal:

Re: E-Series array. 2540-M2 array. Ctrl with Sub-Model Identifier Not Set or Mismatched – L7 Code.

Thanks for clarifying - that was my guess, but it seems not to be. Unfortunately I have no further suggestions. Our documentation does not cover any scenario where this is not the cause of this error.
