I have a customer with a Dell PowerEdge 6800 whose experiencing back-to-back-to-back hard drive faults (either failure or predictive failure) in one particular SCSI slot - Slot3. RAID5 configuration.
After the initial failure the drive was replaced - rebuild failed.
2nd drive replacement - predictive failure. I then had the admin take the drive offline.
3rd drive replacement - rebuild failed.
All drives are refurbs and 1:0 - 1:3 are the same DP/N Y4707 - Seagate (ST3146854LC) drives.
The customer requests that we try DP/N FC958 - Fujitsu (MAX3147NC) drives, the same drives as in 1:4 - 1:11.
I'm thinking backplane or storage controller as the culprit.
