Hp Insight Diagnostics


Hp Insight Diagnostics

I wonder how you can tell which RAID configuration is applied to the physical drives.
For instance in HP, when using HP Insight manager to run HP Insight Diagnostic on a remote computer , all I see is the info such as:



Physical Hard Drive
and
Logical Disks


how can I tell what RAID is applied to the disks and if there is any disk left as a spare how can I tell that it is a spare.

can you logon to the server remotely or locally?

then you can run the HP Array Config Utility which will give you all the detail you are looking for...

If you expand the two entries you will see something like "Logical Drive 1 (68.3 GB, RAID 1)"
Click on that and click "more information" will give you data as attached

Ok, so it states that you have no spare drives. And that the fault tolerance is RAID1 using 2 x 146gig drives in Box1, Bays 1 & 2.

Are you quering why you are getting the "Ready for Recovery" message with no failed drives?
Did you have a failed drive that you replaced?

I haven't replaced any drive.
But wonder why it shows "Ready for recover".
In fact I walked over to the server, and noticed one of the drives has no lights on, neither amber nor green.
it s hard to tell, by just looking at it from outside, it could be a spare, it could be dead, etc...
but the ACU is showing " Ready for Recovery" what does that mean?
