ProLiant DL380 G5 amber disk light
Posted on 2011-09-27
2 of 3 disks in a RAID 5 are blinking amber. what's up? running ESX4. no insight agent. iLO shows nothing in the logs. History, noticed 1 disk had a steady amber light yesterday. overnighted a replacement disk. went to remove that disk this morning and when I pushed the drive the light turned green so I left it alone. now 2 of the 3 disks are blinking amber, rather than steady.
any ideas greatly appreciated.
I edited the zones and added VMware as these disks contain a datastore storing 2 VMs. I also found out that blining lights are essentially failure warnings while a steady light is drive failure. I am just unsure of how to go about swapping the drives out now that 2 are blinking, rather than solid.
thx again for any help
