I have been having some problems with our server (HP ProLiant ML570 G3 running SBS 2003) rebooting randomly at night and in the event of trying to pinpoint the issue I first noticed an error in the Event Viewer
Error source: LSI_SCSI
The driver detected a controller error on \Device\RaidPort0.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp
This led me to run HP Insight Diagnostics which is telling me that one of the two OS drives is failing in its RAID 1 array. My questions are how can I be sure the drive is bad (before I spend money to have it replaced)? The Online LEDs are solid on both drives with the Activity LEDs flashing again on both drives. How can I be sure the drive has failed?
Also is there a possibility this can be causing the random server restarts? Is there anyway someone can point me to a particular log file or place where I can gather more info as to why the server would be restarting on its own?
Also worth noting; recently we started backing up with Symantec BESR (Backup Exec System Recovery) to an external USB. Although BESR reports all backups thus far as successful I think the reboots could possibly have something to do with the scheduled backups its running.
Would appreciate any and all help.
