[Linux-PowerEdge] Disc fw update missing discs (C2100 and some Rxxx)

Hi everyone,

in a C2100 machine I witnessed the disc update failing while updating
disc fw, now "update_firmware --yes" only recognises the last disc on
the controller and says "No action necessary" - see below for details.

In another machine (don't remember which) I successfully made all
updates, among them two discs with firmware 3b04, then disc two of two
failed, was replaced by a similar disc with firmware 3b03, then ran the
update_firmware--yes again, only the 3b03 disc was displayed by
update_firmware--yes (no action necessary) -- but it should have
displayed the disc  with the 3b04 firmware, too, which it didn't show up.

Any hints on this, anyone (except pulling the two discs nr. 9 and 10 out
and then running the update again)?

Kind regards,
mdbuerkle
