Applies to

  • E-Series
  • SANtricity 11.7 and earlier

Answer

  • No.  After drive failure, a replacement drive may not be on the latest firmware revision. 
  • If the replacement drive has an earlier firmware revision than what is currently installed, drive firmware will not be upgraded automatically.   
  • Follow E-Series SANtricity drive update procedures if necessary, to manually upgrade drive firmware after replacement.
