    They are high power draw like all FusionIO that's for sure.
    I have one on the way, and will report back.

    These will need a lot of air flow too

    I am not sure about the message regarding unactivated firmware, the system has been rebooted a few times, and this message still appears. Anyone familiar with that?

    Anyone able to flash these back to Sandisk firmware? Running 4.3.5 from the WDC site for the Px600.

    Keep getting an error, and can't find the cisco firmware for download.

    Code:
    C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop>fio-update-iodrive fusion_4.3.5-20190313.fff
    WARNING: DO NOT TURN OFF POWER OR RUN ANY IODRIVE UTILITIES WHILE THE FIRMWARE UPDATE IS IN PROGRESS
      Please wait...this could take a while
    
     / Updating - fct0:   0% | fct1:   0%
    Error: Firmware file does not contain firmware for device 'fct0', part 'PA006041115'.
    Error: Firmware file does not contain firmware for device 'fct1', part 'PA006041115'.

    Be careful with these (for now), I have a dozen of these and they are on firmware from 2014, and it is a Cisco UCS branded firmware which I cannot (so far) update to something more recent.

    If you use the latest drivers from WD/Sandisk or Dell site (4.3.5) Windows 2016 and Windows 2019 do not see these at all.

    The seller was great, arrived quickly etc, but I unless I can find a way to update the FW and get em working with 2016/2019 I have bricks.

    Crazy idea, but why not to try to use Cisco tools to update it to the latest firmware:
    This specific card was meant to be used in UCS-Cxxx M3, like this one
    the F/W update software I've used before to update a standalone UCS-C rack server
    Cisco UCS Host Upgrade Utility
    ucs-c220-huu-3.0.4k.iso
    Software Download - Cisco Systems

    Hey, thanks for that link. Unfortunately, I think these are like HP Server ISO's, where you have to have a UCS server for it to recognize it and flash whatever needs updating.

    I'm going through it though, hopefully I can find the fw file, so far no luck.

    Maybe I'll buy a UCS server to flash these cards...

    I have a bunch of these in Cisco UCS servers. I don't think the issue is the firmware, you need a Windows driver for Windows to see the thing.

    Get the UCS C-Series utilities ISO, inside there are installers. I have the B-Series ISO (for blades). You install the ioDrive drivers, then install the management tools. There is a software package from SanDisk that allows you to see the drive, you can attach to Windows from there. Until you attach Windows will never see it.

    I am running the Dell ESXi image DellEMC-ESXi-6.7.0-8169922-A01 on a Dell R710 server.

    I used scsi-iomemory-vsl4-55l-4.0.2.983-offline_bundle-1801663.zip from VMWare.
