Drive failure on an HP Proliiant DL380
Posted on 2011-03-16
I just inherited respinsibility for a HP Proliant DL380 server that has a red light on one of the drives signifying that drive has gone bad. The server is still running and I'm running a full backup of the server though BE 12.5.
I Ran the HP Array Configuration Utility and it shows me a HP Smart Array 5i controller (embedded) with three Parallel Scsi Arrays - each with two drives. a) 2-36 gig, b) 2-72 gig, c) 2-72 gig. All six drives are removable in the front of the case.
After the backup is complete, how do I safely and properly replace that bad drive and get the controller to rebuild it?
