Verify that the top hook (1) and bottom clip (2) on the battery pack
are securely attached to the module.
Step 4: Install the cache module
When only one cache module is installed, you should
install the module in the bottom slot.
Slide the cache module into the controller (1) until the side latches
are fully engaged (2).
Close the controller cover.
Step 5: Install the controller
Insert the controller into the MSA chassis.
Push the controller in as far as it will go (1), and then press the
latch handle inward until it is flush against the front panel (2).
for the second battery pack (3).
Confirming the firmware version
All MSA configurations
After replacing a controller, verify that the latest firmware for your
MSA is installed. Go to the web site for your MSA, and if newer
firmware is available, download the firmware from the Web and
install this latest version on the controller(s)
If the firmware versions on the two controllers are mismatched, the
following LCD message might be displayed:
07 CLONE FIRMWARE? '<' = NO, '>' = YES
Press > to copy the firmware from the active controller to the standby
controller. If < is selected, the standby controller is disabled and the
MSA operates in a non-redundant mode until the firmware on the two
controllers does match.
MSA1510i—Although rare, if the cache module batteries on a
replacement controller are uncharged and a power interrupt occurs
during the cloning process, the cloning process might fail. To
recover the affected controller, first go to the MSA1510i web site
and obtain firmware. Then, establish a serial connection to the
affected controller, using the custom CLI configuration cable
shipped with the MSA and a terminal emulator program such as
HyperTerminal. (No CLI prompt is displayed.) Using the transfer (or
send file) command of your emulator, send the firmware to the
controller using the XModem protocol. This transfer can take up to
45 minutes. Do not interrupt this process. See the MSA1510i
maintenance and service guide for more information.
controllers might ship with a new firmware version that is required
for that controller model. If older firmware is installed on the active
controller and newer firmware is installed on the replacement
controller, cloning might fail. To update the firmware on the active
controller, go to the web site for your MSA, obtain the latest
firmware, and update the firmware on both controllers to this latest
Verifying controller status
Verify that the controller heartbeat LED
Verify that the controller fault LED
Unread error log messages can cause the fault LED to light.
Verify that no new error messages are displayed.
Returning the failed controller
Follow the instructions shipped with the replacement.
