CMMVC6548E: The FPGA firmware cannot be applied because the drive has a use other than candidate.


Updating a drive FPGA level is not guaranteed to maintain data integrity, therefore the drive must not be part of an array. To ensure this, the drive must have a use of "candidate" before the package can be applied.

User Response

If the drive is currently in the "failed" state, run through all maintenance actions required for the drive before continuing. If the drive is a spare or is unused, the drive use can be changed through the GUI or through the chdrive command. If a drive is currently part of an array, a hot-spare drive must be configured and the drive use changed to "failed" before changing the use to "candidate".
