Replace drives on mothership `ops` node
Dell sent us replacements for a couple of the 8TB drives on
ops that may have issues updating drive firmware and may report the wrong size. As Michael_Ashton@dell.com says:
As a follow up to our phone conversation, Dell EMC has identified that certain customers who purchased Dell EMC enterprise systems with certain hard drives are unable to update the drive firmware and are seeing the incorrect drive size being reported, which could prevent the drive from rebuilding in the event the drive fell offline.
This is someone ironic since, when we first got the ops node, we had noticed that two of the drives were reporting a different size even though they were the same Vendor/model as the others. Michael Clegg assured us that, "No this is perfectly normal."
The drives to be replaced are on ops:
da5: S/N: VAGHZX4L DS/N: TH044YFVWDT0089A00HL da4: S/N: VAGHZSSL DS/N: TH044YFVWDT0089A00JC
Both are part of the same mirror of our big ZFS pool, so we will have to swap them out one at a time and let it rebuild in between.
