Hi All, we have an IBM S8886 that is currently working fine "we think".. When we installed it, there was a drive management software used to configure the arrays. An IBM "top gun" updated the firmware in the controllers rendering that software useless. We were told a new package was nearing completion, since we never needed to do much to it, we never followed up with him!

Any idea what that package might be or are there any BladeCenter folks here who would like to earn some $$ looking into ours?

How old is this blade chassis and its servers ?? 

What drive management software ? The drives should be using hardware RAID so there should not be any software controller unless it is the chassis mgmt software.
