        seems like I get these every 6 months or so from HP.  Do all drives
         have these kind of issues and I only see the ones from HP because
         they are diligent about reporting/fixing these issues?  Or do they
         suck?   (It's not actually their drives so...)  Also, do I really
         need to bring down my production infrastructure and fix all this
         or is "rare" sufficiently rare (or sufficiently harmless) that I
         can ignore it?   -advice needed.  tnx.
         \_ no raid? can't update 1 at a time?

        \_ Not good for hardware to power it up and down all the time. I

1/12    Good news everyone! You get to enjoy another month of instability, since
        the manufacturer dropped the ball and the case+power for the server we
        ordered on 12/8 has been delayed to 2/16! Yay! --t
        \_ where did you order this?
        \_ This is why you buy from HP or Dell and not some White Box POS.
           It used to not be worth the premium to pay for a name brand,

Release Date: 2013-04-26 Last Updated: 2013-04-25 DESCRIPTION IMPORTANT : The hard drive firmware update in the Resolution section below is considered a critical fix and is required to prevent the issue detailed below.

This issue has only been observed in a lab environment under firmware stress test conditions, and has not been reported to date in a customer environment. SCOPE Any HP system configured with any of the following HP SAS drive models running an affected version of the drive firmware, as listed in Table 1 below. Note : The Option Kits listed in Table 1 do not necessarily contain affected drive models.
