I finally got Dell OpenManage installed last night on our Dell PE2950
server. When I logged in to OpenManage I checked out our RAID
configuration and saw that there was an issue with the firmware/drivers
for the PERC 6/i controller. Here it was it says:
Firmware Version 6.0.2-0002
Minimum Required Firmware Version 6.1.1-0034
Driver Version 00.00.03.18-rh2
Minimum Required Driver Version 00.00.03.20
Seeing this, I logged into premier support at Dell to see what the
latest drives and firmware are and did find we are behind.
My question(s) is, should I update the firmware first and then the
drivers? How tricky is this and what kind of issues could I encounter?
We are running CentOS 4.7.
