Problem to Avoid
Be careful when you perform an operating system update or reload!

To avoid accidentally reformatting all attached LUNs and removing all data on them, follow the advice given below.  If these things happen and the updated system includes StorNext, this could keep StorNext from functioning.

How to Avoid It
When performing an operating system update or reload:

  • Disconnect any fiber-attached media from the system
  • Have only local operating system-required LUNs visible.

Following these precautions will ensure that only the required LUNs are affected.
