Storage Array is not Faulted

These errors are repeated eveyday at approx 2am.  I have spoken to the manufactures but as the device is out of contract there were unable to help.  But they did say it might be either a PSU problem or mainboard.

I not 100% sure as the same error are reported on my other storage array.

Any Ideas ?

That's normal behaviour for an SPS (Standby Power Supply) test. You get the dire warning of doom "Disk Processore Enclosure (Bus 0 Enclosure 0) is faulted. Servers may have lost access to disk drives in the storage system" because you're on an older level of code. You can safely ignore the message. The SPS test consists of a short power-cycle of the SPS, so you'll see the array go faulted, then the SPS will recharge, then the array should return to normal.

This is from memory - some of the details will be wrong, but it'll steer you to the right place: you can change the SPS test schedule by right-clicking on each SPS (depends on the release of FLARE you're running. You may have a 'Physical' folder in the Navisphere tree, or you may find the SPS under the Storage Processors) and select  Properties. You'll see the option to set the SPS test time.
