It is required to install the latest firmware for the Dell PowerEdge R740xd Servers.


Due to a problem with the firmware, reading from the disks returns unexpected errors resulting in OSD creation failing.

Additional Information

To verify the latest Firmware are being used, the Dell support site should be used.

Additionally the following errors may also be logged / seen in "/var/log/messages" of the intended new OSD hosts / servers:
