H21656: Minimum code level after node canister replacement - IBM Servers
RETAIN tip: H21656
When replacing failed node canisters on IBM Storwize V3500 with Field Replaceable Unit (replacement part number) part number: 00AR107, Storwize V3700 with replacement part number part number: 00AR108, and FLEX System V7000 with replacement part number part number: 00Y4587, the existing system version must be upgraded 188.8.131.52 or later immediately after node canister replacement.
System version 184.108.40.206 and prior do not contain enhancements required for seamless operation of replacement part number Part number: 00AR107 for Storwize V3500, 00AR108 for Storwize V3700, and replacement part number part number: 00Y4587 for Flex System V7000.
If replacement part number part number: 00AR107, 00AR108 or 00Y4587 are inserted into a system with 220.127.116.11 or prior, and not upgraded to system version 18.104.22.168 or later, users will see eventual performance degradation and loss of access due to limitations in older system levels.
The system may be any of the following IBM servers:
This tip is not software specific.
This tip is not option specific.
The system has the symptom described above.
The following system firmware level(s) are affected: 22.214.171.124
After installing replacement part number part number: 00AR107, 00AR108 or 00Y4587, Immediately ensure that the system firmware is upgraded to version 126.96.36.199 or later.
To verify the storage subsystem firmware, check the 'System Version' in the storage subsystem management Graphical User Interface (GUI) under:
If the system is at 188.8.131.52 or prior, the user must upgrade the system immediately after node canister replacement. The new system version can be downloaded from:
Changes to newer replacement part number parts required enhancements to software levels.
