Lost Firmware Password on Sun StorEdge 3320 Raid

I am working on a Sun Storedge 3320 raid that was in storage for about two years and nobody remembers or recorded the firmware password for. We are trying to revive the raid and put it back into service but so far are unable to get around the firmware password. Originally we were trying to remap the luns on a set of hard drives that we hope to preserve the data on. Now we are working with a spare set of drives that we can freely overwrite or reformat. Is there a jumper setting like those on Windows based system mother boards that we could use to bypass the firmware password? (The StorEdge L25 below was the closest product available on the listed products. This is not a tape drive, rather a 12 disk raid.)

SOURCE: Can i get a SCSI

You shouldn't have too much trouble, they are a bit old hat but you should be able to get one from most PC shops/repair shops, some electrical retailers but I'd try ebay for the cheapest option.

Here's a male to male version on ebay:-

Just ensure what terminals you need at each end of the cable, there are various choices.

Can't see drives outside of raid


You may not be able to boot you drives outside of a RAID array depending on the RAID type (software/hardware) and configuration (RAID0/1/5). Generally a mirrored RAID1 should be bootable off of the RAID array. If you are using software RAID or a RAID0, you best bet is to update the RAID firmware, and if the data is accessible at all, transfer the data to another storage device.

You can recover RAID data from hard drive with RAID recovery software easily.
Tenorshare Data Recovery Enterprise is a comprehensive data recovery software that supports RAID recovery for RAID 0 and RAID 5. Lost data in RAID 0 and RAID 5 can be deeply scanned and restored immediately. Meanwhile, files and folders in RAID 0 and RAID 5 can be copied to other partitions directly. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoveryenterprise.htm

No power on tape device. Re-plugged power cord and cycled the power switch.


Check for a replaceable fuse. Look on the back of the unit where the power cord goes in to the case. Typically in close proximity to the cord there is a fuse in a screw-in type receptacles, usually black in color. PLEASE UNPLUG THE UNIT TO REMOVE IT.

Raid 5 crashed


Hi Chris,

How many drives are part of the array and what type are they? Are the drives making any unusual sounds like clicking or screeching? If not, then you should be able to recover the data. If the drives are making clicking sounds, you will probably need a professional data recovery service that specializes in Raid 5 data recovery to help you.

If the controller shows that only 1 drive is bad, you should be able to rebuild it by replacing that drive. If the controller shows all the drives are bad, then it is most likely a problem with the Raid 5 controller itself. In this case, you could try putting the drives in a working version of the same enclosure/controller.

Check the obvious also, like loose connections to the drives. Whatever you do, dont force a rebuild as this will probably result in permanent data loss.

System not detecting the disk array.


Hi there, You apparently don't have downloaded all drivers and software needed. I'd go to: http://www.sun.com/products-n-solutions/ hardware/docs/Network_Storage_Solutions/Adapters/index.html. Install the software in the following sequence: 1. Download and install Sun StorEdge SAN Foundation software 4.2 packages and patches. See Sun StorEdge SAN Foundation Software 4.2 Installation Guide, 817-1244. 2. Download and install the appropriate JNI 2 Gb PCI Single and Dual Port HBAs packages and patches. See JNI 2 Gb PCI Single and Dual Port Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters Release Notes, 817-2260. Good luck!
