[Completed, 17:30 12-10-21]: This maintenance is complete. No impact to workloads was observed.
Date: Friday, December 10, 2021
Time: 5:00PM MT
Purpose of Work:
Nimble Storage has informed us that our All-Flash storage arrays are running on a version of NimbleOS that has a software defect which could lead to false predictive failure alerts for member drives in the storage network. 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 transparent 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.
