Use the following table to match your node type (left-side column) with the version of OneFS that you are running to determine which procedure you should follow to update your drive firmware.

Resolved Issues

The following issue has been resolved in the latest drive support package:

  • A No_SSD version of the drive support package was necessary to address the L3 cache corruption issue that is described in ETA 200097. There is now only one version of the drive support package. However, you must perform a simultaneous drive firmware update if you are running one of the following versions of OneFS:
    • OneFS 7.1.1.0 – 7.1.1.3
    • OneFS 7.2.0.0 – 7.2.0

If you are running one of those versions of OneFS, the procedure for performing a simultaneous drive firmware update is included in the Isilon Drive Support Package 1.21 Release Notes.

Upgrade Instructions

Refer to the “Known Issues” and “System Requirements” sections of the Isilon Drive Support Package 1.21 Release Notes before upgrading. Drive support package installation and drive firmware upgrades are strongly recommended. Each node in a cluster that requires a drive firmware upgrade must be upgraded individually (one node at a time).
