Could you please confirm the warning events and post the description for the storage component

First dont use image with bmp files, there are big, use giff or jpeg that is smaller.

If you expand the first you get any more information? And you have a yellow warning.

Check this and try to use the Dell tools to check you where is the problem(in hardware),289483,sid179_gci1318945_mem1,00.html

when I expand the STORAGE...i do see two warning lights "orange" RAID5 Vistual Disk 0 Logical Volume 0 on controller 0, drives - DEGRAGED and the same error for disk 1. So maybe that is why I have that red status alert?

Yes maybe, if you look at the disks(locally) do you see any red lights?? Don't know if this server have this on the disks. When they have a problem, they have a red light.

But try to use some of the Dell tools to check the system(CPU, Memory, and Storage). This is the best to check really the health of your server.

The warning isn't coming from the resource with the yellow light...if you expand through your hardware, you'll find the red warning for the specific hardware. Do you have OpenManage? It is a SNMP hardware monitoring tool you can install within ESX/ESXi. If you do have a disk that is bad or 'going bad', OpenManage should be able to show you that. As mentioned by BestWay above, as FYI, certainly use a different img format. PNG is actually best. Thanks :)

Hope that helps.
