    NetApp SANtricity Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP)  technology represents a significant advancement in storage system, data protection and data management. As disk capacities continue to grow without sufficient increases in data transfer rates, traditional RAID rebuild times are getting longer, even up to several days. This slow rebuild results in much more time with degraded performance and exposure to additional disk failures.

    General Note: Newer NetApp controller firmware might be approved and qualified by BOSCH. This article only refers to a introduction in time of a 11.50 firmware generation.  (e.g. status 08/2020 there is an 11.60.2 qualified by BOSCH)  Details can always be found at the BOSCH product catalogue:  and Potential for Data Inconsistency Issues on E-Series Storage Systems With the controller firmware 11.50.1 and newer version an issues are fixed by NetApp, which enforce an immediate update of all E2800 iSCSI Storage Systems (their controllers). In July 2019 BOSCH announced the need to update from all former NetApp controller firmware to newer versions. These newer versions should be certified and approved by BOSCH. In 2019 there was also an announcement by NetApp. All customers owning a NetApp storage system with valid warranty agreement and registered unit do have access to the public announcemnt of NetApp. This was announced by NetApp on their support websites (see Bosch approval 31st of January 2018  Bosch approval 7th of May 2019 Bosch approval  20th of September 2019 newer NetApp firmware versions: NetApp Firmware no longer allowed for usage NetApp Firmware: 11.50.R1 no longer allowed for usage NetApp Firmware: 11.50.2 no longer allowed for usage BOSCH qualifies and approves new global NetAp frmware vversions for E2800 controllers. Please always use the latest approved NetApp global firmware where possible Please follow our BOSCH Knowledge Base and monitor for updates at this article for important news.  The BOSCH submodel ID 356 ensures that the NetApp system is optimized for 24/7 video recording. Products that were affected: All DSA E-Series (E2800 12-bay) and DSA E-Series (E2800 60-bay) Example product variants: DSA-N2E8X4-12AT Base unit 12x4TB High-performance and high-capacity storage system base unit with iSCSI disk arrays, single controller. DSA E2800, 12 x 4 TB HDD, Order number DSA-N2E8X4-12A DSA-N2C8X4-12AT Dual controller unit 12x4TB High-performance and high-capacity storage system base unit with iSCSI disk arrays, dual controller. DSA E2800, 12 x 4 TB HDD, Order number DSA-N2C8X4-12AT Note: There are other models with various HDD capacity (e.g. 8TB harddrives and larger) available For more details visit the BOSCH product website Summary of issue NetApp® has become aware of issues that could occur when an E-Series controller reboots at certain points during the evacuation of data from a drive that is performed as part of the sequence when a drive is being failed by the controller. As a result, there is a small possibility of data inconsistency on controllers running certain versions of E-Series SANtricity® OS controller software.   Issue Description First announced in 06/2019: The issues are possible on E-Series controllers running 8.30, 8.40, 11.30, 11.40, and 11.50 versions of E-Series SANtricity OS controller software. The overall probability of these issues occurring is very low, but RAID 1 volumes have a higher probability of encountering the issues than other RAID levels or NetApp Dynamic Disk Pools. These issues do not affect traditional RAID volume groups that have no global hot spare drives because drive evacuation does not occur in this configuration. For information about fixes in these releases, view the readme notes for each revision release. Workaround No workaround available. Controller Firmware update is needed. HDD Firmware update is not in relation to the descdribed issue here, but it is in general recommended to install the latest offered HDD firmware that is recommended by BOSCH and NetApp. The same applies for HDD firmware.   Solution: Update the NetApp Controller Firmware Upgrade E-Series SANtricity OS controller software to the latest applicable revision release for each platform as soon as possible. Please reach out to your local BOSCH technical team and BOSCH BT-SC/ETP-MKP team to ensure that the relevant NetApp Firmware has been approved to be usable for 24/7 video recording and replay use case. Even the global NetApp Firmware can be installed on BOSCH submodel ID 356 Where to get the Controller Firmware All customers with a full NetApp NOW support account and valid warranty on their system can download the controller firmware by using the own NetApp user account.

    Symptoms The password for the local admin and diagnostic port is set to the same starting with E2800 controller firmware 11.40.2 or later. In case a user does not know his password any longer, it is not possible to reset and re-configure this password by using the diagnostic port  (serial port on the rear side near the uplink ports of the controller). With controller firmware older than 11.40.2 it was possible to reset the Administrator Password needed for configuration. But older NetApp controller firmware cannot and must not be used any longer due to other technical reasons. When accessing the Management Port IP to enter the WEB GUI of the NetApp E2800 system for configuraiton or support data collection, the Administrator Password is required. For the time being this is reported to NetApp to work out a solution for all NetApp customers and BOSCH.  Solution and Procedure: Right now, BOSCH and our customers have no documented instruciton or procedure to remove / reset the password. We are working ont hat with high preassure and awareness. We kindly ask all customers requiring access to the configuraiton but having not the Administrator Password on hand for configuraiton, to reach out to BOSCH support and ask to sent the requewst immediately up to a Levle 3 Ticket to the Gatekeeper team at BOSCH BT-SC/ETP-MKP2 or BT-VS Support in the BU.
