HP SCSI Harddrive

Hello,

Last Saturday I found one of my HP DL 380 G4 Server SCSI harddrive got failed, after looking for the right spare number harddrive today as of thursday i got a new harddrive, after replacing the harddrive it started the mirror and rebuilding stage but still red mark of trash can with crossed on is blinking. I have attached the log file, the location of Harddrive is 0 as per the Server Rack, I have attached all the event log with in a notepad file where my concern is   Event ID:      1216 Date: 2/24/2011Time: 7:57:36 PM. The server and its applications are working fine but my only concern is the red blinking sign, in past i have changed 2 different server harddrive but none of them shows me this kind of behavior

I appreciate for your usual and prompt support

How long has it been rebuilding?

It's possible the second hard drive is faulty, or the back plane that the drive plugs into is faulty

Replacement has exceeded SMART tolerance levels by the looks of it, could be a firmware issue or could be a flakey replacement. Could be reconditioned but not had the SMART data reset.
 
ADU report would yield more info.

@ andyalder: Sir thank you very much for your advise, taking underconsideration of your comment i have requested a new harddrive, now I need your advise once again, since the harddrives are hot swapable and raid 5 is configured shall i replace the falted harddrive running server state? Doing this will not create any problem to OS or any hardware related issue.

Yes, replace it without powering down the server. Make sure there is only the one faulty drive first as RAID 5 will only tolerate a single disk failure. Safest to backup first in case something goes wrong, not that anything should go wrong.
