Answer/Steps

PL6 Port A Health - will test the ProLink 6 connections via fiber port A on the PLRs. If a fiber going into port A on a PLR is disconnected, the

                            module(s)connected to that PLR will turn red. If the PLR has connection and communication via port A, the module(s) connected

                            to that PLR will turn green.

PL6 Port B Health - will test the ProLink 6 connections via fiber port B on the PLRs. If a fiber going into port B on a PLR is disconnected, the

                            module(s)connected to that PLR will turn red. If the PLR has connection and communication via port B, the module(s) connected

                            to that PLR will turn green.

PLR Port A Health -  will test the ProLink 5 SATA port A on the PLR. If there is connection where needed (refer to Translation Table), the modules

                             will turn green. If there is no connection where needed (refer to Translation Table), the modules will turn red.

PLR Port B Health - will test the ProLink 5 SATA port B on the PLR. If there is connection where needed (refer to Translation Table), the modules

                             will turn green. If there is no connection where needed (refer to Translation Table), the modules will turn red.

PL6 EPLD - will indicate what EPLD firmware is on the PLRs. If all firmware is the same, all of the modules will turn green. If there are modules

                with different firmware, all modules connected to those PLRs will turn red.

PL6 Micro - will indicate what Micro firmware is on the PLRs. If all firmware is the same, all of the modules will turn green. If there are PLRs

                 with different firmware, all modules connected to those PLRs will turn red.

PL5 Port A Health - will test the ProLink 5 connections via SATA port A on the modules. If a SATA cable coming from port A on a module

                           is disconnected, the module(s) that don't have a connection in port A will turn red. If the module has connection via port A,

                           the module(s) will turn green.

PL5 Port B Health - will test the ProLink 5 connections via SATA port B on the modules. If a SATA cable coming from port B on a module

                           is disconnected, the module(s) with no connection in port B will turn red. If the module has connection via port B, the

                           module(s) will turn green.

PL5 EPLD - will indicate what EPLD firmware is on the modules. If all firmware is the same, all of the modules will turn green. If there are modules

                 with different firmware, all modules connected to those modules will turn red.

PL5 Micro - will indicate what Micro firmware is on the PLRs. If all firmware is the same, all of the modules will turn green. If there are PLRs

                 with different firmware, all modules connected to those PLRs will turn red.

Temperature - indicates if a module is too hot or cold. Modules turn green to indicate proper temperature and red to indicate improper temperature.
