You mention a motherboard having been replaced, was it for the same blade in question? And both before and after mobo replacement you are having the same lock issue on Slot 1?
Also you mention that the SD card is not hardware protected, by this do you mean that we have ensured the card itself is not set to physical lock? What fault specifically is being seen from within UCSm?
Please try the following when you have the chance:
+ do scrub policy like this:
# Disable FlexFlash in Service Profile Local Disk Policy
# Enable FlexFlash Scrub in Service Profile scrub policy
# Re-acknowledge the server
# Disable FlexFlash Scrub in Service Profile scrub policy
# Enable FlexFlash in Service Profile Local Disk Policy
Please keep in mind that this will scrub the SD card that is installed at the time.
Gabriel, Thanks a lot for your reply, but unfortunately the procedure don't solve our issues. For completeness I reply to your questions: The chassis-1/blade-2 was replaced with a new one (only the motherboard was replaced, all the other components come from the old broken blade). The Lock issue was appeared after the replacement, before we had a fully functional RAID 1 FlexFlash. The card itself is not physically locked and also inverting the cards the behaviour do not change. These are the reported errors:
