Yeah. It has been up and down. Still no answer as to why. The blade has now been up for more than 24 hours and the only thing I have done since the nightmare began was to resume mirroring on the SAS disks assigned in IBM i which had inexplicably stopped AND I managed to get the LIC (RSE) restored and the latest CUME (TL09111). So far it has been running like a champ. It doesn’t add up.
Meanwhile, the box of parts that IBM sent today is still unopened. Go figure.
