Sun Storagetek  2540 - switch from Simplex to Duplex Controller mode

hi,

i did an firmware on 2540. 2 FibreChannel Controllers. After reboot only one Controller is available.

CAM: 6.9.0.16
Array Firmware: 07.35.72.10
First i saw the System/NVSRAM: N1932-735843-902

The Troubleshooting Test tool tells me: The array is in simplex mode so controller B is unavailble.

I got the information that NVSRAM -902 is for simplex (One Controller Systems). So i flashed the System/NVSRAM: N1932-735843-002 (Two Controller System) to the Controller with the "csmservice" tool.

The Troubleshooting Test tool "also" tells me: The array is in simplex mode so controller B is unavailble.

I read that the command: csmservice -i -a unlabeled -Z UNLOCK -w -o could switch the array from simplex (Single Controller) to duplex (Dual Controller mode). The result of this command is:

--- begin
Analyzing Firmware
Error from updating Controller - Array is not in lockdown mode
Firmware install failed.
---end

So how could i switch the Array back to 2 Controller mode ? Thank you for help.


Bye,
Andy
