OK, let me try one more time to clarify. I’m not naming the vendor …
they’re a small maker of commodity storage and we’ve been using their
stuff for years and, overall, it’s been very solid. The problem in
this specific case is that a major version firmware upgrade is
required … if the controllers were only a minor version apart we
could do it live.
That makes more sense, but still do tell which vendor so I can avoid
them. It's 2018 I expect never to need to take my storage down for *ANY*
firmware upgrade *EVER* - period.
Any vendor that falls short of that needs to go on my naughty list, for
specific checking that this is no longer the case before I ever purchase
any of their kit.
