Known Issues
The following sections provide information about known issues and bugs filed
against this product release:
■
“Installation and Initial Configuration Issues” on page 23
■
“Hardware and Firmware Issues” on page 25
■
“Documentation Issues” on page 26
■
“Operational Information” on page 28
If a recommended workaround is available for a bug, it follows the bug description.
Installation and Initial Configuration Issues
This section describes known issues and bugs related to installing and initially
configuring the Sun StorageTek 6140 Array.
Auto Code Sync Feature Can Fail During Controller Replacement
Bug 6757957 – Replacement controllers have recently shipped with 7.x version
firmware on them. If the primary controller is replaced while the array is powered
on and a good secondary controller with 06.xx firmware exists, the replacement
should auto code synchronize to the secondary controller. During a controller
replacement the replacement controller occasionally does not auto code synchronize
to the secondary controller as it should. Instead, the array automatically upgrades to
7.x code.
In such a case. the firmware on the controllers will not match the baseline firmware
on the Common Array Manager Software 6.2.0 CD or download. An alarm will be
generated.
Sun StorageTek 6140 Array Release Notes, Release 6.2
23
Workaround – Download the following patch and follow the patch instructions to
install it on the array.
Patch 140060-01 6xxx Array Firmware -- (Solaris)
Patch 140061-01 6xxx Array Firmware -- (Windows)
Patch 140062-01 6xxx Array Firmware -- (Linux)
Future replacement controllers will be updated to correct the problem.
Array IP Address Not Discovered When Queried
Bug 6734964 – When running controller firmware version 07.10.25.10, the IP address
of the array is not found during discovery. Therefore, the array cannot be accessed
nor managed. This issue occurs when the array’s default IP configuration is used.
The array defaults to an internal static IP address when no Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is available to assign an IP address.
Workaround – The array IP settings need to be configured prior to network
attachment. Perform one of the following tasks:
■
Assign a static IP address to the array.
■
Configure a DHCP server to issue an IP address to the array.
Controller Reboot With Out-of-Band Management
Bug 6754351 – While performing out-of-band management over Ethernet via the
array management software graphical user interface (GUI), it is possible for the
array controller to reboot with an exception.
Workaround – Disconnect the Ethernet cables and switch to in-band management.
Contact Sun Services for information regarding possible controller firmware
updates.
Auto-Negotiation of Ethernet Switches Must be Set to On
The Ethernet ports of the array auto-negotiate for standard 10 and 100 Mbits/second
full duplex connectivity. The ethernet switch that the array’s management path
connects with must have auto-negotiation turned on. If it is not set, the array will
eventually lose visibility from the management host.

Sun StorageTek 6140 Array Release Notes • November 2008
Hardware and Firmware Issues
This section describes general issues related to the Sun StorageTek 6140 Array
hardware and firmware.
Controllers Enter Reboot Loop After Data Replication Pairs are Restored
Bug 6755990 – When using controller firmware version 7.10.25.10 or higher, if an
event occurs which normally would cause a single data replication pair to become
unsynchronized, all data replication pairs become unsynchronized at the same time.
A restart of data synchronization then causes both controllers on the primary data
replication array to reboot continuously.
Null Reference for a Removed Drive
Bug 6746324 – After performing a drive replacement for a virtual disk on an array
running controller firmware version 07.xx.x.xx, the array returns a null reference for
the removed drive.
Failed Drive Maintenance LED Remains Illuminated After Volume
Deletion
Bug 6590564 – When a drive has failed and is part of a volume being deleted, it is
possible for the failed drive’s blue maintenance LED to illuminate and remain
illuminated despite the drive no longer being assigned to a volume.
Workaround – A reboot of the controller will clear the maintenance LED.
Large Data Replication Block Size Causes Controller Reboot
Bug 6680647 – When running data replication with an I/O block size of 4096 blocks,
it is possible for the array controller to reboot with anomalous data.
Workaround – If running controller firmware version 06.xx.xx.xx, do not exceed a
maximum data replication block size of 512 blocks. If running controller firmware
version 07.xx.xx.xx, do not exceed a maximum data replication block size of 1024
blocks.
Sun StorageTek 6140 Array Release Notes, Release 6.2
25
Controller Cache Memory Size Displays 0
Bug 6747153 – When running controller firmware version 07.xx.xx.xx, both the GUI
and command line interface (CLI) versions of the array management software report
0 for cache memory size.
Workaround – The following serial command can be used to gather the cache size:
rpaGetMemorySizeMB
Addition and Removal of Initiators From Zones in Fabric Are Not
Dynamically Detected
Bug 6329784 - When an initiator is added or removed from a zone in a fabric, the
configuration software does not dynamically detect the change. The WWNs of
initiators newly added to the SAN are not displayed.
Workaround – If the WWN of a new initiator is not in the drop-down list on the
New initiator page, try creating the initiator by manually entering the new WWN.
This will force the page to refresh. When you create another new initiator, the WWN
will be in the list.
Cannot Boot From System With a 6768A Direct Attached HBA
Bug 6358173 - The 6768A (QLogic 2342) 2-Gb dual-port adapter cannot be used in
direct attach mode, and you cannot boot from it.
Workaround - To use 6768A in direct attach mode, move the jumpers from pins 2-3
to pins 1-2. To boot using this HBA, move the 6768A jumpers from pins 2-3 to pins
1-2 or put a switch between the host and array.
Errors From IOM 2A and 2B Ports
Bug 6417872 - When Small Form-factor Plugs (SFPs) are installed into the I/O
Module (IOM) 2A and 2B ports, the front amber fault LED lights and the IOM
displays an H8 error.
Workaround - Do not install SFPs into these slots; they are reserved for future use.

If a volume failure on a Sun StorageTek 6140 Array results from failed disk drives,
you must be careful when introducing replacement drives that were part of a
volume in use by another Sun StorageTek 6140 Array.
28
Sun StorageTek 6140 Array Release Notes • November 2008
Workaround - To avoid having the array incorrectly initiate a volume migration
process with the newly introduced replacement drives, perform one of the following
tasks:
■
Verify that the volume on the Sun StorageTek 6140 Array with the failed disk
drives has not been deleted. You should leave the volume in a failed state and not
delete the volume.
■
Verify that the disk drives being taken from the inactive Sun StorageTek 6140
Array are not part of an active volume. If the disk drives are part of an active
virtual disk, delete all volumes residing on that virtual disk before removing the
disk drives.
Controller Tray ID Numbering Is Unrestricted
Controller tray IDs can be set to any number between 0 and 99. Expansion trays use
the values 0 to 79. Controller trays should use the values 80 to 99 (except 85) to
avoid duplicate tray IDs.
If tray IDs are duplicated, the array will not be able to detect the drives on one of the
two trays that have the same ID (which one is arbitrary). Do not use ID 85 for the
controller tray, as this number is the default setting that indicates everything is
operating as expected.
The Expansion Module Must Be Set to the Same Speed As the Controller
The controller and expansion modules must be set to the same speed. If the 2/4GB
switch is set to 2GB on one and it is set to 4GB on the other, the expansion module
will appear inoperative with no indication of the cause.
The controller is set to 2GB at the factory. An expansion module is set at the factory
to whatever its disk drives are. You can tell what the speed of the disks on the tray
are by removing one of the disks and examining the label. Next to the disk name on
the label there is a number indicating the RPM and speed of the disk. For example,
the number 15k.4 indicates the disk is 15,000 RPMs and 4GB.
Cable Adapters
The array ships with two RJ-45 to miniDIN cables, a RJ45-DB9 adapter, and a RJ45DB9 adapter with a null modem. The two adapters allow users to connect to the
array from most Sun workstations, portable PCs, and terminal servers. If your ship
kit does not include the RJ45-DB9 adapter with a null modem and you cannot
connect with the RJ45-DB9 adapter, either supply your own adapter or contact Sun
Service.
Sun StorageTek 6140 Array Release Notes, Release 6.2
29
To connect from a portable PC without a serial port, you will need to purchase a USB
to serial adapter, available from most computer stores.
When Performing an Array Import, Do Not Modify Management
Objects
If you create management objects while an “import array” job is running, it might
interfere with the import. Be sure that everyone who uses the destination array does
not modify or create any objects (including volumes, initiators, mappings, and so
on) while the import is in progress.
Array Health Is Displayed Incorrectly During RAID-5 and RAID-1
Reconstruction
Bug 6202126 - During RAID-1 or RAID-5 reconstruction, the array health status is
incorrectly reported as OK in the Sun StorEdge Configuration Service application
while the Sun Storage Automated Diagnostic Environment correctly reports volumes
in degraded mode.
Using a Volume Before It Is Fully Initialized
When you create a volume and label it, you can start using the volume before it is
fully initialized.
Controller Tray Battery Information
During bootup, the battery light might flash for an extended period. The battery
charger performs a series of battery qualification tests before starting a battery
charge cycle. This series of tests occurs at subsystem power-up. The tests are
automatically reinitialized approximately every 25 hours by a timer.
Each controller tray contains a hot-pluggable lithium ion battery pack for cache
backup in case of power loss. The on-board battery is capable of holding a 2gigabyte cache for three days (72 hours). The service life of the battery pack is three
years, at the end of which the battery pack must be replaced (it is field-replaceable).
Status Codes
The following is a list of the meanings of the status codes that may display on the
numerical LEDs on the controller and expansion modules.

CHAPTER
A
Disk Drive Insertion
This appendix describes how to properly insert a disk drive into a controller or
expansion tray.
Drives are inserted with the power on, unless specifically instructed not to by Sun
technical support.
The correct way to insert a disk drive into the tray is as follows:
1. Lift the drive handle up to open it.
2. Push the disk drive into the chassis by slowly pushing against the drive housing
until the drive handle engages with the chassis.
3. When the handle starts to move itself downwards, push the disk drive handle
down. This will crank the disk drive the rest of the way into the chassis.
FIGURE A-1 shows a drive being inserted into the chassis the correct way.
35
FIGURE A-1

■
“Site Wiring and Power” on page 41
■
“DC Power Input” on page 42
■
“DC Power Connector Cables and Source Wires” on page 43
Site Wiring and Power
The Sun StorageTek 6140 array uses wide-ranging, redundant power supplies that
automatically accommodate voltages to the AC power source or the optional –48VDC power source.
The power supplies meet standard voltage requirements for both North American
(USA and Canada) operation and worldwide (except USA and Canada) operation.
The power supplies use standard industrial wiring with line-to-neutral or line-toline power connections.
Chapter B
Using DC Power
41
Note – Power for the optional –48-VDC power configuration is supplied by a
centralized DC power plant instead of the AC power source in the cabinet. Refer to
the associated manufacturer’s documentation for specific DC power source
requirements.
Consider the following information when preparing the array’s installation site:
■
Protective ground – Site wiring must include a protective ground connection to
the AC power source or the optional –48-VDC power source.
Note – Protective ground is also known as safety ground or chassis ground.
■
Circuit overloading
Power circuits and associated circuit breakers must provide sufficient power and
overload protection. To prevent possible damage to the array, isolate their power
source from large switching loads (such as air- conditioning motors, elevator
motors, and factory loads).
■
■
Interruptions:
■
Input transient – 50 percent of the nominal voltage
■
Duration – One-half cycle
■
Frequency – Once every 10 seconds
Power failures – If a total power failure occurs, the array automatically performs
a power-on recovery sequence without operator intervention after power is
restored.
DC Power Input
The DC power source must provide the correct voltage, current, and frequency
specified on the array nameplate label and the serial number label.
The DC power limits within which the Sun StorageTek 6140 array can run without
interruption include the following:
■
■
