Interesting. On the MD1000s they seem to be indifferent to the drive firmware. The HBA however did complain (H800 in my case) until a firmware update was completed. Are you saying on the MD3000's the chassis has issues instead of the HBA? Is there a firmware update available to fix this?

Genuinely interested as MD3000's are on radar in the coming months...
