[Completed] Nimble SAN Firmware Upgrade - December 16, 2018
Posted by Jay Sudowski on 14 December 2018 11:22 AM
[Completed, 22:07 12-16-18]: This maintenance is complete on all Nimble Storage Arrays. As expected, no impact to workloads was observed. |
Date: December 16, 2018
Time: 9:00PM MT
Purpose of Work:
Nimble Storage has let us know that a couple of our storage arrays are running on a version of NimbleOS that has a bug that could result in an outage. We will be upgrading our storage arrays to newer firmware that is not impacted by this bug.
Impact of Work:
Historically, we have performed many Nimble Storage upgrades which have been completely hitless and not at all noticeable to any workloads consuming storage from our arrays. Accordingly, we do not anticipate any impact, but there is always a slim possibility that connectivity to the storage arrays will be disrupted, resulting in workloads relying on the storage to hard reboot.
Please contact us with any questions / comments / concerns.
