Hi

The HP Microserver G7, P/N: 658552-421
2 pcs 500 GB Disks, System, RAID1
2 pcs 3TB GB Disks, hided Win BU disks, RAID 1 (these can actually be 3TB disks)
The server beeps time to times (haven't been at site for awile). Will be there tomorrow.
At Win Disk Manger I can see both 500GB disks (SYSTEM) and the Disk 0 is Online but Disk 1 is Offline. The Disk 1 states:

" Offline (The disk is offlinen because it has a signature collision with another disk that is online)

I tought that WIndows will se only one disk since there is a HW Raid involved. At least WIndows can't see both hided BU disks.

At event viewer I can see this:
