HP ProLiant ML350 G5 HOT SWAP DRIVE BUT ARRAY FAILED

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?

thnaks

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.

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.
