Well I built a live CD and ran the Dell utility and it did nothing! No
failure but no inventory ... so I think this may be a problem !

I have 4 Powervault 220s devices which need the firmware on the embedded
controller cards upgraded. I have download the dell Linux utilities and
tried to do the upgrade. However, this is failing - seemingly because I
have mirrored drives for the root filing systems (software mirror using
md) which get broken by the scan that the upgrade utility attempts. I
have tried to get round this by building a ramdisk with the required
utilities on it but the firmware upgrade still fails.
The systems are currently Fedora 9 based. Has anybody managed to do this
sort of upgrade using these utilities and if so HOW?
Could you boot in the rescue mode, not mount the drives, and have
the utilities on a USB drive? Or better yet, build a bootable stick
with a live CD and the utilities?
