I recently purchased a "used" Dell 2950 with 4 one terabyte SATA hard drives. After loading it with Server 2003 server I have the following error in the system log: "Controller event log: PD 00(e1/s0) is not a certified drive: Controller 0 (PERC 5/i Integrated)". The error repeats 3 more times (one for each drive). The drives are HP branded Seagate Barracuda ES.2 1TB 7200 rpm. I know the drives are from a HP server and I'm sure that's why I'm getting the error.
My question is this.... Is there any reason to be concerned about these drives? They seem to be running well and I've crunched them pretty hard with "Dell 32 bit Diagnostics" over a 24 hour period with no errors. They are server rated drives so I believe the can hold up to the 24/7 up time.
I value your opinions.
