Nimble SAN Firmware Upgrade - July 16, 2019 (COMPLETE)

[Completed, 23:21 7-16-19]: This maintenance is complete on all Nimble Storage Arrays. As expected, no impact to workloads was observed. |
Date: Tuesday, July 16, 2019
Time: 10:30PM 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 software defect which could lead to unexpected storage behavior in some circumstances. We will be upgrading our storage arrays to newer firmware that resolves this issue.
Impact of Work:
Historically, we have performed many Nimble Storage upgrades which have been un-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.
