Hey Checkyourlogs Fans,

I just wanted to make you aware of a critical Firmware Update that is require for your Intel DC S4510 and S4610 Drives. In the fine print of the release notes you will see a critical note: Resolved 1.92TB and 3.84TB SKUs may become unresponsive at 1700 hrs of cumulative Idle Power On Hours.


To me this is a pretty critical fix and just reminds everyone that when dealing with Storage that your Drive Firmware requires updating just like your other components.

You can find more information here:

You can download the Firmware Tool Here:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28639/Intel-SSD-Data-Center-Tool-Intel-SSD-DCT-

Here is the sample syntax to do the upgrade:

isdct.exe load –intelssd 0


 

Don’t forget to follow normal maintenance procedures for Storage Spaces Direct and proceed through node by node.

I hope this helps you out and happy updating.

Thanks,


Dave
