What hardware is faulty on this Server?

This is using HP Proliant DL360 G7 server. This server is located remotely from my working place. From iLO, we managed to see that the drive 3 of drive group (4 drives per group) is showing "SMART error". So, we quickly contacted the staff over there to replace the hard disk.

However, the same error persists. What would be the hardware at fault?

Please upload an ADUreport so we can verify the status, or just look in the ACU and verify it that way. On older versions of software the Array Diagnostic Utility is a separate software, on newer it is under the Array Configuration Utility diagnostic tab.

Hi rindi,

You are right, although they didn't replaced the wrong disk, they may not slotted in correctly. LED doesn't lit after the replacement.

However, the second attempt did the work with proper slotting. LED is lit and from iLO, no message error any more.

I'd be questioning the onsite personnel it doesn't take much ability to remove and insert a disk properly

I've had to go to site after sending the customer a couple of "faulty" replacement disks and they hadn't opened the handle before pushing them in, but it's only about 1 in 100 that get it wrong. The SFF disks don't sit proud enough to notice they're sticking out a bit if you do it wrong. Had one where they put a new style HP caddy in an old style chassis, not at work but here at EE and they even uploaded a photo,

By re-slotting the hard disk, the LED shows green, and error message gone. It really works
