HP Proliant 360e Gen 8 Raid Ready for recovery....and just sitting...

I have an HP server A DL 360e Gen 8 with a smart array b320i raid controller card that has two drives saying ready for recovery....there are two logical drives on this system.  I am not sure how to start this with the server being up.  I really can't have this server down....really at all.

I would call HP Support and get them on the phone with you . According to your screenshot, one drive is dead and another is in an error state. I don't know if the software can start and recover from this. Please call HP server support right away.

Just got an update this morning....I should have parts before the end of the week.....disadvantage of old boxes out of support with old parts.

Calling to get a new server on the way....was trying to make this one last till next year, but when your main SQL server is on its death bead you gotta do what you gotta do....

Still will update when they get here.....I was wanting to use this current box as a redundant box.

See if you can replace the dead drive with a new one and get the rebuild going.

There is only one faulty hard drive in that server as far as I can see, don't know where John Hurst gets two from. Change it to "show physical drives" rather than show logical in the drop down box to see which one. As the LEDs on both drives show them as good it's possible that one drive fell asleep and a reboot would fix the problem. If you upload an ADU report (from diagnostics tab of your screenshot) I may be able to tell you more.

BTW, on the server above that the bright red light is not an error light, it is a do not remove light.

One drive is faulty (red) as I noted and one drive has warning errors (yellow) . Maybe the lights were misinterpreted from the screen shot.

@CCSO691 - Is the rebuild proceeding?

Replacing both drives got it back and going.
