We acquired from a company that went out of business a V7000 SAN. After making sure everything was in working order I performed an upgrade of the firmware to the latest version. The upgrade went ok at first, I received the messages that the firmware was updated successfully on both nodes. I then turned off the device and prepared to move it to another server rack. I wanted to do a check on a few other things and started the device backup only to have it not power up.
I ended up having to plug the device into three different UPSs to get the device powered back on. One of the PSUs is in a constant state of battery charge, the other is showing a status of the battery being good and bad. However the device did come back up and I tried to access the device but the GUI would not come up. I accessed the service port and saw an error with the batteries. I thought that this was ok and brought the devices back to active state.
However when they came back, I am now getting a solid power light and solid red error light. I see that in the manual that it means that a hardware failure is preventing the bios from making the code active. I called a number of technicians around my area and they are about as perplexed as I am. I would also like to note that I am unable to now access the service port or USB slots.
Thank you for your time and assistance.
