VNX Partition Utility Reimage.

Hello,

I have a VNX5300 where the private LUN containing the Partition Utility and FLARE files have been deleted.

I have searched everywhere for a procedure to reimage the partition utility to later apply the operating system reimage procedure but encounter divergent information, some say it is possible, others claim that only by purchasing a full FLARE DRIVE SET.

After all, is it possible to reimage the partition utility on a no warranty equipment via serial cable? Every help is welcome.

I've never had to do that, so I don't have any direct experience to share with you.  It does appear to be possible though, take a look at these links.

The bad news is I don't think it's possible unless you have some kind of access to other disks that already have the vault image.
