After running the 3Ware diagnostic script, the status of the array went to OK. A short time later, it reverted to this

$ sudo /usr/local/sbin/tw_cli info c0 u0

Unit     UnitType  Status         %RCmpl  %V/I/M  Port  Stripe  Size(GB)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
u0       RAID-0    OK             -       -       -     64K     195.548
u0-0     UNKNOWN   UNKNOWN        -       -       p0    -       104.314
u0/v0    Volume    -              -       -       -     -       195.548

But this differs from the web output (image) which is rather similar to the original cli output. Look at Subunit 1 underneath Subunit 2 (bottom of the page).

So.. here goes an upgrade of the firmware:

$ sudo /usr/local/sbin/tw_cli
//supernews> update fw=/home/dan/3WareFirmware/prom0006.img

Warning: Updating the firmware can render the device driver and/or
management tools incompatible. Before you update the firmware,
it is recommended that you:

1) Back up your data.

2) Make sure you have a copy of the current firmware image so that
you can roll back, if necessary.

3) Close all applications.

Examining compatibility data from firmware image and /c0 ... Done.

Both API and Driver are compatible with the new firmware.
Recommendation: proceed to update.

Given the above recommendation...

The new image will take effect after reboot.

After the reboot:
