 Post subject: Add M6710 to 8200:"enclmgmt failed parsing upgrade request"

3par 8200 - 2 nodes 2 enclosures.
It was working fine for a long time. I'm attempting to add a third enclosure.
The enclosure is an M6710 that was previously connected to a 3par 7200 system.
The I/0 cards on the M6710 have been replaced with cards from an 8000 series enclosure sourced from ebay.

The system seems to recognize it, but it needs a firmware update.
When attempting to update it there are errors.

For one thing, the system sees the cards in the new cage in opposite positions.
I was very careful to follow the cabling guides and have checked several times.
The card that is in the top, the system sees as card 0 instead of 1.
When trying to upgrade previously, it wanted the cabling swapped between the cards:
====================================================
cage3 - Move (cage3, I/O 0, DP-1) to (cage3, I/O 1, DP-1)
cage3 - Move (cage3, I/O 0, DP-2) to (cage3, I/O 1, DP-2)
cage3 - Move (cage3, I/O 1, DP-1) to (cage3, I/O 0, DP-1)
====================================================
But after adjusting the cabling as prescribed, checkhealth returns an error about the Loops being on the wrong nodes :
====================================================
Cage cage:3 LoopA should be on even node
Cage cage:3 LoopB should be on odd node
Cage cage:3 Firmware is not current
=====================================================



I'm wondering if it's trying to upgrade something other than the cards.
We tried to swap the card with a known good one in a different enclosure to see if we could make it upgrade there. But once we do that, the system reports everything the same - firmware update needed on the same cage. It doesn't see anything needing an upgrade in the known good enclosure with the suspect card from the M6710, but it sees the same errors on the M6710 with that known good card there.

At this point I'm not sure what else to try except removing the enclosure, switching places for card 0 and 1, and attempting again, but I don't think that's the problem.

I can't find any reference to this 'enclmgmt failed parsing upgrade request' anywhere. I'm wondering if I'm trying to do something that's not supposed to work?

Thanks in advance for any insight.

7k and 8k enclosures are not comptible. 7k is 6G SAS, 8k is 12G SAS. I have very little confidence that you will be able to see any real life in your Frankenstein enclosure.

Thanks very much for the reply.

Ok. We were hoping the controllers from the 8k series would make that work, but I suppose even with the controllers matching that there might be something that can't support that throughput upstream of the controllers. And in that case the cryptic error 'enclmgmt...' that I can't find reference to anywhere is sort of expected.

If anyone has any ideas I appreciate it, and I'll try until I guess we can find an 8k enclosure with no cards to put in its place instead.
Or if anyone is curious how the system is seeing that 7k series cage I'm glad to run show commands.

This forum has been very helpful in learning about these things - thanks again.

Not sure where you're at..... but 8k cages come cheap of ebay if you're looking for something to a lab. The 8000 system was launched 8 years ago or so, so there is a significant number of systems that have gone out of production and into the second hand market.

If you're looking at more of a production type of system, there are many brokers that sell refurbished cages with warranty. Even HPE does that thru their HPE Renew/Refurbished programs thru HPE Financial Services for hardware that has been returned from lease.

Yeah that may be the way we end up going is to find an 8k series enclosure.
A concern though is finding one that's not on a newer firmware than we're running that we won't be able to add to the system.

This is kind of a long shot, but are there any sellers people are familiar with where you might be able to find out the software version before purchasing? I've been searching a while with no luck.

Thanks again for the help.

3.3.2 as you’re running is close to as new as it gets.

3PAR will downgrade cage firmware if required when admitting.
