Hi folks,

Running Solaris 10 on Sun Netra T5220 with bays 0 and 1 containing 146GB SAS drives.  The front panel LEDs for both drives is green and everything appears to be running normally.  

However, prtdiag is reporting voltage indicator failures on SYS/HDD0 and SYS/HDD1 (see output below).  Any thoughts as to why this might be occurring?

Regards
Dennis

$ prtdiag -v

Thanks, from the outputs there is CD/DVD drive connected on c0, which has some errors. But the device did not show in "cfgadm -al". Wondering why ?

Yeh, I'm confused.  Interestingly, we have another Sun Netra T5220 with identical hardware configuration and operating system which is reporting the same.

Probably the hardware is answering "ok" and the OS is waiting "OK".

For me it's a little firmware bug :)
