I have a red light and X on my HP dl380 146.8GB mail server HDD, when I look at the drives they show healthy, what is the reasoning it shows this and why is it healthy?

Thanks

You're looking at the OS level...the drive has failed (in the array) at the hardware level.
You should replace this drive as it has failed.
You can determine this using HP Array Congiguration Utility

Thanks- How do I use the HP Array Config Utility?  Also, how do I determine the RAID level and if I replace the drive with a new one, does it automatically configure if its mirrored?

If the server is up, you're using some sort of fault-tolerant array (RAID 1 or RAID 5 most likely).
The ACU will also advise you to this.

If you don't have it already installed (Start->Programs->HP System Tools->HP Array Configuration Utility

Then you can download it from here: http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/software-management/acumatrix/index.html

Though, since this is a mail server, I would schedule downtime before replacing the drive, or even installing the software (though I don't believe a reboot is necessary for the install)

Very glad I could assist you (I happen to be replacing a failed drive at the moment myself - that's how I know! haha)

Thanx for the grade! :^)
