I have Linux Server on remote location in which one hard disk fail. On that server I have six hard disks in RAID 5. The fstab is as follow:
/dev/cciss/c0d0p3    /                    
/dev/cciss/c0d0p4    /d01                 
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1    swap                 
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2    swap                 
proc                 /proc                
sysfs                /sys                 
debugfs              /sys/kernel/debug    
usbfs                /proc/bus/usb        
devpts               /dev/pts             
/dev/emcpowery1      /log            	  

Open in new window

I try with
#sdparm /dev/emcpowery1
#sdparm -all /dev/sda

Open in new window

and similar but no results.

How can I find which harddisk is failed and what model number is?

    Does the server have lights to indicate the drive has failed? If so, the easiest way is just to pull out the failed drive

    failing that - if you can reboot the server, BIOS will tell you nicely

    Looks like a HP smartarray controller.  Download HP's ACU utility for LINUX.
