Output "No Result" by SSD Data Center Tool for D3-S4510

Jump to solution

I installed SSD DATE Center Tool to update the firmware of SSD D3-S4510 of DELL PowerEdgeR610 (OS: CentOS 7.6). 

(Related https://www.intel.co.jp/content/www/jp/ja/support/articles/000038720/memory-and-storage/data-center-...)

However, “No results” is output by “isdct show -intelssd”, and we cannot proceed with the update.

I will attach a log file, so please give me some advice.

Hello Matsu2020,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

To answer your question:

 

If we update the D3-S4510 with this disk failure to a new firmware, can we use it on another server?

 

First, we recommend you to update the SSD firmware (FW) as soon as possible in your SSDs that are not affected by the issue using the latest version of the Intel® SSD Data Center Tool (Intel® SSD DCT) https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28460/Intel-SSD-Data-Center-Tool-Intel-SSD-DCT-?product=87...

 

For a guide on how to use this tool, please visit the following link:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/memory-and-storage/Intel_SSD_DCT_3_0_x_Use...

 

Section 2.2.1 includes information on how to run the firmware update.

 

To update the firmware, run the following command 'isdct.exe load -intelssd' without quotations. If you encountered an error while attempting to update, check chapter 2.2 and 4.11 of the user guide.

 

If they are affected, the recommendation is still to update the FW and test again the SSDs and to check if they are recovered and have no issues.

 

Second, if your SSD is recognized and it is working fine after the FW update, it can be re-used, otherwise, we recommend you to process a warranty replacement.

 

We hope you find this information helpful.

 

Best regards,

Your SSD is likely a Dell-branded SSD, with their firmware. That means you need to work with Dell on any firmware update.

It is not a Dell-branded SSD. Purchased from another SSD store and installed.

That's why I come directly to the Intel forum for questions.

Are there any limitations such as SSD Data Center Tool not working on DELL platform?

Hello Matsu2020,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel® Memory & Storage Support.

 

As we understand, you need assistance with your Intel® SSD D3-S4510 Series in your Dell* server. If we infer correctly, please review and provide us with the following information:

 

  • We will like to know if you are you able to see your SSD in your PC BIOS.
  • We will like to know how long ago you purchased your SSD.
  • We will like to know if you have another PC to test your SSD and to try to update the firmware.

 

We will be looking forward to your reply.

 

Best regards,

Hello Matsu2020,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

As mentioned in the USB/PCIe* Adapters and Enclosures for Intel® Solid State Drives article (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000055211.html)

 

Some third-party cables or adapters do work, but it's important to keep the following in mind:

  • Make sure that the adapter or enclosure exports the correct model string to the operating system. If the tool doesn't receive the correct model string, the various tools may not work or have unexpected results.
  • The adapter or enclosure must supply power to run the drive.
  • Protocols supported by the adapters need to convert the protocols properly between the drive and adapter. For example, a USB 2.0 enclosure won’t work with an NVMe* SSD, the adapter should be USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt™

 

It should also be noted that there could be a performance impact. To get the best performance of Intel® SSDs, we recommend connecting them directly to the motherboard.

 

To further assist you we will appreciate if you can provide us with the following information:

 

  • We will like to know if you are you able to see your SSD in your Dell* PC BIOS.
  • We will like to know how long ago you purchased your SSD.
  • The SSU logs extracted from your Windows* 10 system (this to get a better understanding of your current configuration)
  1. Go to https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/ (for Windows*) and to https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26735/ (for Linux) download the software.
  2. When finished downloading it, open it.
  3. Attach the file obtained to your reply.

 

We will be looking forward to your reply.

 

Best regards,

Hi,

 

We have already solved the firmware update by ourselves, so it is okay. 

 

Lastly, I would like to receive only one official answer from Intel.

 

Our server also had some D3-S4510 (old firmware) purchased last year, which caused a disk failure due to 1700 hours of idle time and replaced it with a new firmware disk.

(Related https://www.intel.co.jp/content/www/jp/ja/support/articles/000038720/memory-and-storage/data-center-...)

 

If we update the D3-S4510 with this disk failure to a new firmware, can we use it on another server?

The reason for asking such a question is that when I did the above on a test server, Disk was recognized properly and seemed to be reusable.

However, if Intel's official view is that it is not recommended to reuse the D3-S4510 after a disk failure after 1700 hours of idle time, that is acceptable.

 

This lousy bug has broken some expensive SSDs. This is too wasteful. I want to reuse it without wasting it if possible. 

 

Please give me a formal opinion.

 

Regards,
