comment How many IP addresses can I expect to block on a Cisco 5500-X Series firewall?
We are looking at one with 8 GB of memory, but I think some have 16 GB.

Michael, I think you are right; I now found the correct spec change document and it mentions no serious-looking SATA issues.

I fear that you may be right, but it would of course be nice to try as many options as possible before going the replacements route. Flashing the BIOS over could be a next step.

The problem is that it's part of some backplane, which connects directly to the nodes. So there is no sata cable you can disconnect/connect. Also, it happens on 16 different servers so it would be suspicious if they were all bad. :/

They've been Super nice previously, we have lots of "SM gear". :) But this one case is rather annoying, I'd have to say.
