Compaq Ultra 3 SCSI drive lights are blinking a repeating pattern, need to know what it means.
Posted on 2008-06-12
One of the Ultra 3 SCSI drives in a ProLiant ML350 is blinking a repeating pattern.
The light that's blinking is the "arrow" ilght. the other two, the hard drive & fault lights do not come on at all.
On POST, the RAID controller does not recognize the driver, nor does Windows Server 2003 when it's booted up.
Here's the pattern:
3 rapid blinks
2 sec pause
3 rapid blinks, followed by a fourth blink that stays on for about 4 seconds.
I thought if the drive was dead or had a fault, the fault light would be lit red, it's not. I've searched the net for an answer, but can't find one for this unique blinking pattern.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
