Applies to

  • SP 4.X / 5.X
  • AFF A200 / FAS26XX
  • AFF A300 / FAS8200
  • AFF A700 / FAS9000
  • When upgrading the Service Processor (SP) to version 4.1, 5.1 or later, from version 4.0, 5.0, or 5.0.1, the SP might get into a state where it always boots to the  backup image.
  • Since SP upgrades often happen during motherboard replacements, the issue is may be encountered once we reach the SP upgrade step. 
  • The SP will report running a secondary version: [SP.notice]: Running secondary version 4.0
  • In the SP MGMT MLOG (found in the etc/log directory) , you will notice similar error messages:
