Hi,

Can you please run the below steps to collect logs:


1.      Inventory collector binary will be located at /usr/libexec/dell_dup

2.      Execute inventory collector binary with -outc option (example: /usr/libexec/dell_dup/invcol_8G4DV_LN64_16_10_00_816_A00 -outc = /root/inventory.xml).

3.      Extract inventory collector by running the command  "/usr/libexec/dell_dup/invcol_8G4DV_LN64_16_10_00_816_A00 --extract invcol_ext_dir" (directory may need to be created for extracting the inventory collector).

4.      Change to the  extracted directory by running "cd invcol_ext_dir".

5.      Go to the location lx64\cmie\MaserAppsIE  inside   folder invcol_ext_dir.

6.      Run the command "./MaserIE -i -d > inv.xml" and collect the logs "inv.xml, Debug.log, SMAL_DBG.log"

Please attach the inventory.xml, Debug.log, and SMAL_DBG.log

Thank you,

Hi,

Firstly, thank you for DSU!  It's very popular here because it has made firmware updates so much easier to find and to apply.

Secondly, I'd like to report a problem with DSU v1.3.1.
After running it (e.g. with 'dsu --preview --non-interactive') two read-only mounts are left on the machine.
After 'dsu' has finished, the output of the 'mount' command has these extra two lines:

/dev/sdg on /tmp/SECUPD type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0077,dmask=0077,codepage=437,iocharset=ascii,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/sdh on /tmp/SECUPD type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0077,dmask=0077,codepage=437,iocharset=ascii,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro)

If I then run 'dsu' a second time I get two more mounts of /tmp/SECUPD, making four in all:

/dev/sdg on /tmp/SECUPD type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0077,dmask=0077,codepage=437,iocharset=ascii,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/sdh on /tmp/SECUPD type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0077,dmask=0077,codepage=437,iocharset=ascii,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/sdi on /tmp/SECUPD type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0077,dmask=0077,codepage=437,iocharset=ascii,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/sdj on /tmp/SECUPD type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0077,dmask=0077,codepage=437,iocharset=ascii,shortname=mixed,errors=remount-ro)

The above lines are from the 'mount' command on a PowerEdge R710 running Scientific Linux 7.2.
On a similar machine running Scientific Linux 6.8 the 'mount' output includes two lines like these for each run of 'dsu':

/dev/sdc on /tmp/SECUPD type vfat (rw,shortname=mixed)
/dev/sdd on /tmp/SECUPD type vfat (rw,shortname=mixed)

I don't remember this happening with previous versions of DSU.
It's inconvenient for us to have these read-only mounts left behind, not least because our hardware monitoring system flags an alert whenever it finds one.

Would it be possible for the /tmp/SECUPD mounts to be unmounted at the end of the 'dsu' run please?
