Dell ProEdge 1950
(4) 146GB 10k drives
RAID 5 with hot spare
Hyper-V 2012, with one guest OS running server 2012
I have a Dell proedge server with a raid 5 (4) drives including a hot spare. The hot spare is blinking amber and green at equal internals on the leds. These are used drives, and a new raid set. I looked up the lights online and it says it could be indicating failure of the drive. If I go into bios, the smart data says the drive has no problems, and while in bios the drive is solid green on the led. In fact, it stays green until the guest OS completely boots, then it switches to the green/amber.
Is the drive going bad or does this mean something else?
