HI

We have a server HP ML150 G6 with two HDD of 300Gb each one, so first of all we want to know if those are in RAID because we have noticed that windows server 2008 (The disk manager) only detects just one HDD.

There is a a Red light in the indicator of the second HDD instead of green of the first one.

Any ideas?

Regards.

Yes you are using raid. The red light means that the hard drive is degraded. You need to remove that hard drive, and replace it with the same hard drive that you removed. Same model, and size 300 GB

Steps:

1. Shutdown server
2. remove bad drive
3. replace bad drive
4. power on server

Depending on your raid controller, this may be all you have to do. Some raid controllers require you to go into the controllers setup, and configure the drive.

You mean with "degraded" that the HDD is not usable any more, am I right?
