    Why are empty Pure Storage bays showing warning when unused?

    jm_sysadmin

      On 5 of my 6 (one is currently not in SRM but would show the same warning) Pure storage device we have unused bays for growth. On those five the entire array status shows warning. I don't believe that it should show like that in SRM, and would like to figure out to to get this green.

      From the SRM summary:

      Or from the AppStack:

      This seems to be a result of the empty bays, the disks appear as below:

       

      From the Pure management page you can see the status is not failed, or warning, its Unused.

       

      This has the unfortunate effect of showing nearly every production server running on an array that is in Warning, so people naturally ask if that is the root cause, when its not related.
