||Prime Infrastructure Gen 2 appliance received with unhealthy disk|
Some of the new Generation 2 Prime Infrastructure Appliance units might report a moderate fault and/or display an illuminated amber LED when powered up for the first time.
This issue involves two onboard flash cards, called Cisco FlexFlash, that are used in order to hold small images (less than 32 GB) for bootups in certain configurations. The FlexFlash is typically composed of two 32-GB flash cards that are mirrored to each other. If the two become un-mirrored, a moderate fault is generated on the unit.
There is no additional background information for this issue.
When this problem occurs, a Moderate Fault message is generated and/or an illuminated amber LED is displayed when the unit is powered up for the first time.
The Moderate Fault error message is displayed via the Cisco Integrated Management Controller (CIMC) appliance software.
Refer to CSCuv50800 for a workaround.
