FlexFlash Error

I'm getting the following error; FlexFlash Controller 1 on server 1/1 is unhealthy. Reason: Status: FFCH_ERROR_0

Is this a serious warning? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

How many SD Cards do you have on the blade? Are you actually using SD Cards?

Could you please reset the Flex Flash controller to see if the alarm gets cleared?

Resetting the FlexFlash Controller

Step 1 In the Navigation pane, click the Equipment tab.
Step 2 On the Equipment tab, expand Equipment > Chassis > Chassis Number > Servers.
Step 3 Click the server for which you want to reset the FlexFlash controller.
Step 4 In the Work pane, click the Inventory tab.
Step 5 Click the Storage subtab.
Step 6 In the Actions area, click Reset FlexFlash Controller.
Step 7 Click Yes to reset the FlexFlash controller.

You can also re-ack the server and reboot CIMC after this to see if the alarm gets cleared in case that resetting the flex flash controller does not clear it.

Regards,

I really appreciate your helpful post and many thanks to you but, I have a different error "Invalid RAID" so, do you think that the resetting will be suitable or what and if the resetting would delete any data on flex flash or what?
