I just upgraded a NetBackup 5220 appliance from version 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 (126.96.36.199a) but after the upgrade completed the 2 disk arrays (64tb total) attached to the appliance are showing as “not available”. My guess is that maybe I needed to update the bios or some other firmware prior to the upgrade for it to go smoothly. Is there a specific site that says what the bios and/or any additional firmware needs to be at when you upgrade a 5220 appliance to 188.8.131.52a?

Before actually performing any upgrades / patches, usually it is best to check SORT, here :
...and to :
- read the LBN pages
- read the upgrade guides
- read the docs / tech-notes for any identified EEBs
You will unfortunately have difficulty to locate documentation - the 5220's as well as 2.6.x ran out of support some time ago...
Investigate the disk volumes - from an elevated prompt run "vxdisk list" and "vxprint".
You may find that the system has failed to import the volumes after the upgrade. If so it's a relavtively painless fix.
It's unlikely (but still possible) that the issue is related to firmware.
I wonder if this is a real issue - @SheldonMenez came back one day later, edited the post to insert some totally unrelated URLs inbetween the text.
This triggered the VOX spam filter and the post was quarantined. I removed the 'spam url's' and unmarked as spam.
@SheldonMenez has not been back.
Today the EXACT SAME post is repeated by a newly registered user @EastonNolan:
I will ask the forum admins to keep an eye out....
