chassis-001 1207QCQ012 faulted Sun Microsystems, Inc. Sun Disk Shelf (SAS-2) 1207QCQ012 15000
and this error when looking at fmadm faulty,
Description : The device configuration for JBOD '1207QCQ012' is invalid.
Refer to for more
Response : None.
Impact : The disks contained within the enclosure cannot be used as part
of a storage pool.
Action : Correct the configuration to conform to a valid configuration.
==> note the 7320 disk shelves are designed to be used with either 20 or 24 HDDs. In the 20 HDDs setup (disk-000 to disk-019), the slots 020 to 023 should be used for SSD log disks, at least 020 should be filled in. Make sure there is not an unused DATA disk in slots 021,022,023. Triple-heck with chassis disk show, zpool status and zpool status -l (and wc -l).
