Using Seagate’s online tool to see if your disk is destined to become a brick.
In light of the sev-1 Seagate firmware bug that bricks both consumer and enterprise-class SATA disks, I ran the Seagate online tool that tells people if any of my disks are affected by the boot-of-death bug.
Yup, this just isn’t my day. Worse, my affected barracuda drives are running in a Solaris system as part of a zfs-based software RAID file system, and Seagate wants me to plug them into a windows-based PC. That isn’t going to happen, so once they send me the updates, I’m going to use the -flash command SMARTMon-UX to upgrade firmware natively from Solaris and my LINUX machines that are using these disk drives.
