Latest FLARE 26, CX700s, NST and processor utilisation

Has anyone else tried loading the latest FLARE 26 on a CX700? I loaded CX700-Bundle-02.26.700.5.031.pbu on two CX700s in our lab today and got this error both times.

I’m using NST NaviServiceTaskbar-Win-32-x86-loc-6.29.2.0.62-6.exe on both Windows 7 and Windows 2003 hosts. I tried the steps in emc211113 (the snappily titled “What are my options if my NDU rules check fails the CPU Utilization check?”), but didn’t have any luck. Well, I did, in the sense that I enabled Engineering Mode in the NST (CTRL-SHIFT-F12, insert password), but I get the feeling it wasn’t meant to go that way. Everything seems fine on the arrays now, and no hosts lost access. But I don’t recall ever having to bypass this check. I’m assuming that it has a lot to do with the age of the arrays, and I’ll be honest I haven’t done a lot of log checking to verify what’s been going on. We’re holding out on upgrading our CX4-960s until FLARE 30 is released, so we’ll see what happens then …
