Hi,

We are running Server 2003 R2 Standard on a HP ProLiant ML350 G5.  One of our replaceable hard drives has and orange light, we have purchased a replacement but are reluctant to hot swap as it look slike the ARRAY has failed.

Reason we think this is because of the following error messages:

POST Error 1785 Drive Array Not Configured
in array config utility there is a red cross next to SAS Array A
and the batteries are listed as failed.

i have run an ADU and attached the file.

Are we ok to hot swap the drive?

I don't see an attached file.  But is the server on and in Windows and all your data is there?  If the OS is installed on a logical drive on Array A and the OS is running then it's fine.

Hello,

zero risk, you can replace the disk, it is the goal of hot swap disk and raid ! :)
The cache message can be due to a lack or a problem with the battery.
