Pinned topic ServeRAID Manager Agent Service will not start after ServeRAID 8i card swap

‏2013-03-02T14:18:16Z |
Hi Guys,

I have a bunch of X366 / X460 Servers with ServeRAID 8i cards in the field; they are all running local copies of ServeRAID Manager for email based fault reporting and RAID maintenance.

One ServeRAID 8i card started showing occasional errors and was duly swapped out with a new part.
The new card discovered the attached arrays, configured itself and all is well with the server... except ServeRAID Manager does not find the card "No controllers were found in this system" is reported instead.

Upon further investigation I find that the ServeRAID Manager Agent Service stops 5 seconds after it is started - presumably this is why no controllers are found?

BIOS, BMC, CPLD, ServeRAID 8i Firmware & BIOS, ServeRAID Manager and ServeRAID Manager Agent Service are all latest versions.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled ServeRAID Manager V9.30 (including the)Agent Service.

OS is Windows.
Any ideas anyone?

Cheers,

Pete

    Dear Pete,

    lets check DSA log. Use DSA Portable Edition and post resulted file *.xml.gz.

    Alexander,

    I submitted my DSA Log as requested several days ago - did you get it?

    Many thanks,

    Pete

      Hi Pete,

      first of all update server's software CPLD code (you have mismatched CPLD parts) and HDDs firmware.

    Alexander,

    OK, I will do this tonight as I have to take the Server off-line for both these updates.

    Whilst I appreciate that these firmwares are out of step; the weird thing is that this configuration worked fine for months before changing the ServeRAID 8i Card - do you know of any other possible reason that ServeRAID Manager might not see the Controller?

    Thanks again,

    Pete

      Hi Pete,

      could you inform us about current status. How now worked SR Manager Agent?
