During system POST the BIOS reports an error similar to:
"Safety disk configuration error for fault tolerant operation. Reconfigure the fault bus processors"
The SAF-TE card tracks what devices are in each slot of a hot-swap backplane. If the information discovered by the SAF-TE is out of sync with the cached information, an error like this may occur.
The resolution is to delete and add back in the SAF-TE information manually.
The following steps are not harmful to any existing RAID arrays.
1. Enter the BIOS StorCon utility by pressing <Ctrl-G> during the POST and proceed to the Advanced menu.
2. Select Configure Physical Devices
3. Select ESG-SHV SCA HSBP (the hot-swap backplane device)
4. Select Enclosure Slot Configuration. A graphical display of each slot is represented.
5. Highlight each slot in succession and press the <Enter> key. This removes the cached SAF-TE information.
6. Repeat this process to rescan the accurate hard disk information.
7. Exit StorCon and reboot.
