I am getting an error stating our flexflash is unhealthy after firmware upgrade. Says it is running old firmware. I did not even know we had flexflash on our systems and do not see away to upgrade the firmware. I read that you are supposed to see this in the storage tab but do not see this . How do i resolve this error?

Yeah, but hat is not an option on CISCO ASA4110 unit which have the same issue - you cant do that on a ASA4110 unit
FlexFlash Controller 1 on server 1/1 is unhealthy. Reason: Status: FFCH_ERROR_OLD_FIRMWARE_RUNNING
Same goes for me, we resolved this issue several times by resetting the flex flash controller.
You just have to be patient: after the reset it takes some minutes after the error disappears.
Having similar issue with (UCSB-B200-M4) FlexFlash error below: will resetting wipe out the contents of SDCARD? Will the ESXi Host bootup fine after reset?
Reseting the Controller is disruptive as the server looses the connection to the SD cards.
But it will not erase the content of the cards. If you want to delete the cards you have to choose "Format SD Cards".
Error Invalid Size typically indicates a problem with the SD card themselves.
If you were getting a "flexflash controller unresponsive" then a reset would likely resolve this.
I have also seen this message when the two SD cards being used are not identical. (Different size, etc). The platform requires that the two cards be identical.
We have 2 SD cards setup as RAID1, but that server is only showing 1 now, and it's marked as an "Unpaired primary" that will not boot ESXi? Is having 2 cards pointless for HA/redundancy?
