Contributors netapp-driley

The start ssdCache locate command identifies the Solid State Disks (SSDs) that are logically grouped together to form the SSD cache by blinking the indicator lights on the SSDs.

Supported Arrays

This command applies to any individual storage array, including the E2700, E5600, E2800, E5700, EF600, and EF300 arrays, as long as all SMcli packages are installed.


To execute this command on an E2800, E5700, EF600, or EF300 storage array, you must have the Support Admin role.


Use the stop ssdCache locate command to turn off the indicator lights on the drives.
