  • Added per lun delete flag to address an issue where a cable is removed and added back within the DMD timer expired timeout.
  • Fixed issue with reading raid configuration information for inactive volumes
  • Fixed issue where a Stack trace seen in message log after cable pull and host reset.
  • Fixed issue where The configuration pages are failing if raid volume is configured while issuing a host reset
  • Fixed issue where the Devices are not removed after "cable pull".
  • Fixed issue when devices are behind two deep cascaded expanders, they don't get added if the "cable add" is done while host reset is active.
  • Fixed a failure message displayed in the log messages during host reset while removing devices
  • Fixed issue where drives are not getting removed when the enclosure cable is pulled out from the expander and Port Reset is issued.
