Publication Date:  2018-02-06 Views:  39 Downloads:  0
Issue Description

Coffer disks are seen as faulty and the storage boots up in minisystem mode.

Handling Process

Check all disks in CLI via Putty.

In minisystem mode run:

 

showdiskinfo

 

Check disk slot and disk id.

 

 

 

Root Cause

For following situations:

Coffer disks from another storage system were used.

Non-coffer disks were used.

Disks reinserted in the wrong order.

 The storage can't read consistency system configuration from coffer disk, and the storage will enter minisystem mode.

disktool –f w -a 0x80800 -l 8 -C 0x00 -I 1 /dev/sd-??a
disktool –f w -a 0xFF800 -l 16 -C 0x00 -I 1 /dev/sd-??a

disktool -f w -a 0x1FF00 -l 2 -C 0x00 -I 1 /dev/sd-??a
