Dell PowerVault MD3620i - Unable to upgrade firmware - Data

by 4000andreas / April 28, 2015 10:52 PM PDT

Hello Community,

I get the following error message if I try to upgrade the storage from MDMS software:

Data validation error: The storage array cannot be upgraded as host port type representation in RAID Controller Module 0 did not match with those of RAID Controller Module 1. Contact a technical support representative to resolve this issue.

Thank you

I kicked it around a bit and each prior had folk getting in contact with Dell directly. I guess we could take the other road and start replacing boards. That would not involve dell.

There is another thought here. WHY do this? Is it borked?

To get best exposure, be sure to share it's the same machine.

Or better yet, start a new post.
