Om 6.5 didn't see PERC 6/i events

Hi Dell list,

Once again, I need some help (CF OM 6.5 and service freeze on boot for
my last ask).

I'm upgrading all my dell poweredge (1950 II, 2950 III and R300) to
Debian Squeeze and OM 6.5.

We found a very strange "behavior".
I've got an upgraded PE 19500 III. All is OK.

But omreport still report cache battery charging.
In fact, cache battery si no longer charging, but omreport can't see it !

I've put this disk back and omreport say all is ok, but raid rebuild is
in progress. :(

If I reboot this server and then go to the PERC 6 configuration bios. I
can see that RAID is rebuilding.
Then I reboot to Linux.
Now I can see RAID rebuild process but rebuild progress will stuck to
XX%, for example 54% for ever.
I must reboot my server each time I need to "refresh" RAID status, this
is quite painfull. :(

All bios and FW are up to date through SUU 6.5 DVD.
Dell OM seems to be up to date too.

Fwd: FW: SAN HQ Notification Alert

hi,

I know that this mailling list is for linux support, but ...
I have a Dell EqualLogic PS6000 and sometimes I have this kind of alerts, in this case, is about TCP retransmits.

This message was generated by the Dell EqualLogic SAN HeadQuarters service (version 2.1.0.5342)

Caution conditions:

  • 02-05-2011 1:32:53 to 02-05-2011 2:32:54

    • Member EQLSAN02MEMBER01 TCP retransmit percentage of 1,2%. If this trend persists for an hour or more, it may be indicative of a serious problem on the member, resulting in an email notification.

      • TCP retransmit rate greater than 1% should be investigated. Check the network connections and switch settings.

      • Condition already generated an e-mail message. If the condition persists, additional messages will be sent approximately every 6 hours.

    • TCP outbound packet counts for polling period: 3.137

    • TCP retransmit packet counts for polling period: 38

    • eth0 send rate for polling period: <1.0 KB/sec

    • eth1 send rate for polling period: <1.0 KB/sec

    • eth2 send rate for polling period: <1.0 KB/sec

    • eth3 send rate for polling period: <1.0 KB/sec

anyone has/had this kind of problem, and what you did to solve it?....
the equipment is connect to a Dell PowerConnect, and from web console, there is no errors in the ports where Equalogic is connected.

Thanks,
Best Regards,
NBA

OMSA 6.5 installs happily on PowerEdge 1850

Just as an interesting data point, I successfully upgraded from OMSA
6.4 -> 6.5 on a PowerEdge 1850 running CentOS 5.6 (32-bit) with
nothing more than a "yum update."

I was pleasantly surprised that everything went so smoothly. The PERC
4e/Si (what I care most about monitoring via Nagios and
check_openmanage) is completely visible and accessible.

upgrade BIOS and firmware on PE 850

Hello,

Hope you're all doing well. 

I am trying to upgrade the BIOS and CERC firmware on a PE 850, but without success. Here's what I tried :

1. burned ISO of latest System Update Utility DVD - it's 4.8GB and it won't fit on a normal DVD! So I burned it on
a Dual-Layer DVD, and the PE 850 doesn't seem to recognize it.
2. installed Debian and OMSA - but I can't see how I could use this (CLI or web) to performa a BIOS or firmware update...
3. tried to install Windows 2008 32-bit to run the windows BIOS update utility - Windows doesn't recognize
the CERC driver taken from the Dell website.
4. installed Windows XP to run the windows BIOS update utility - pops up an error when I try to run it.

Any ideas? 

Thanks! :)

OMSA Live CD for firmware update on an ESXi host?

I am trying to solve a problem with an R200 that runs ESXi.

There is a known issue with ESXi and old firmware on R200 DVD drives.
But I can't find a good way to update the firmware. The Dell support
site offers both Windows-based and DOS-based firmware update packages
for this particular drive. I have booted the R200 to DOS from USB key
and attempted to run the DOS-based updater, but it is more-or-less
undocumented and it is not getting the job done.

So, I was hoping to use the OMSA Live CD (based on CentOS) to boot up
the ESXi host, but I don't know if the Live CD has firmware update
capability and whether or not it knows about firmware for peripherals
like DVD drives. As I recall, firmware updates, via the Linux
repositories are pretty much limited to BIOS, BMC and storage
controllers.

Before I go to the trouble of scheduling down-time for this ESXi host
(sadly, we don't have vMotion capability), can anybody tell me about
experiences with the Live CD?

Or I suppose I could use any Linux Live CD if I could only find the
right firmware package. The drive in question, according to the ESXi
diagnostics,  is a Teac DV-28SW

Thanks,

Did you try:

http://www.ducea.com/2007/08/27/dell-bios-firmware-updates-on-debian/

to update the BIOS?  It has always worked for me - no farting about with
iso images, or broken rpms required...

Not sure about the CERC, but I tend to end up manually pulling apart
Dell's bizarre RHEL rpms to install under Debian for RAID cards.

If that doesn't work, I use the DOS one (and netboot, or USB,
syslinux+CD boot the DOS image).  If all else fails, perhaps you could
try flashrom (have used it successfully on many non-Dell system)
http://www.flashrom.org/Flashrom

I think I would be inclined to ditch the CERC, and replace it with
something a bit better supported under Linux, like a $20 Silicon Image
3132, or $40 Silicon Image 3124 (PCIe or PCI-X respectively).  Oh, you
can even flash those with flashrom under Debian.

Tim.

Is linux.dell.com painfully slow for anyone else?  I'm trying to rsync
