Dell 2950 Hard Drive led keeps blinking
Posted on 2009-04-01
I have a Dell 2950 Server with 6 Hard Drives. The first two drives are configured as a Mirror (RAID 1), the next three drives are configured as a RAID 5, and the last drive is configured as a universal spare. I noticed that this morning drive 4 keeps blinking repeatedly and I find this rather strange since this is the 2nd drive in my RAID 5 setup! How can it be doing that. I'm convinced that something is wrong, but the server is still working fine. I am not sure what to do because I do not have any drive monitoring software installed on this machine. Does this mean the drive is dieing?
