HP Proliant G5 3 Drives RAID 5 - Single Drive Failure
Posted on 2013-05-17
I have a HP Proliant G5 that has 3 146 Gig SAS drives. We cam in this morning and found that it would not boot. I booted into Smart Start and it says
Warning Status Message
Code 341 146 GB 1-Port SAS Drive at Port 1l:Box1:Bay2 is predicted to fail soon.
The array shows a status of 271 Failed Logical Drive.
If you boot the system and go into the Array Controller Config during boot up, it shows all three drives as OK.
I thought if you had RAID 5 and a single drive goes out, the system will continue to run. I thought all I would have to do is replace the drive and rebuild the new drive. Can someone tell me how to get the system to boot on the 2 GOOD drives and limp along until I can get a drive replacement?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
