Instructions:

 

 

This firmware updated addresses 2 issues.   

         
  1.         Update the correctable error threshold for certain newer NVRAM cards. This update will reduce the filesystem shutdowns for correctable CPU or RAM errors in the NVRAM subsystem.     
  2.      
  3.         Add support for Power Supply units from a new vendor for certain Data Domain hardware models. This update is required when the new power supplies are installed. The new model 712 power supplies will be installed in pairs.     
  4.    
    These firmware updates can be applied to any Data Domain systems, but will only activate on the following systems:   
      DD9500 DD9800 DD6300 DD6800 DD9300    
   
    The update includes the new firmware package, and also updates the table of valid firmware versions to recognize the new firmware versions. There are no other updates in these packages. Applying these fixes will not modify version of DD OS installed on your DD System. History of the updates will be included in the installation history.   
   
    If you have a DD6300 DD6800 or DD9300, download the package for the family of DD OS installed on your DD system.       
    If you have a DD9500 or DD9800, download "DD OS NVRAM Firmware Update April 2019"   
   
    Upload the RPM file to the DD system following the same steps as a DD OS system upgrade.    
   
    Install the RPM file to the DD system following the same steps as a DD OS system upgrade. If the update is not required for your system, the system pre-check will indicate the reason.   
   
    After the installation is complete, a reboot the DD system to apply the firmware updates.   
   
    When upgrading DD OS to a later DD OS version after applying this firmware update, applying the firmware update again may be required. This will be necessary after upgrading to:   
         
  •         DD OS 6.0 at or below DD OS 6.0.2.40     
  •      
  •         DD OS 6.1 at or below DD OS 6.1.2.30     
  •      
  •         DD OS 6.2 at or below DD OS 6.2.0.10.     
  •    
   
      The new firmware will be incorporated into subsequent DD OS releases, so no re-application will be required.
