Missing Spare Management option in ACU

Missing Spare Management option in ACU

I have an DL380 G5 server with three 72 GB drives and three 146 GB drives.  There are two RAID1 arrays configured.  The first (72 GB drive) array has a spare configured.  The second (146 GB drive) array is missing the option for Spare Management.  See the attached picture.

 

Can anyone explain this?  Is it possible to correct?  I have updated the ACU, but that didn't help.

 

Thanks in advance,

David

Hi David,

 

What is the ! mark/message about?

Have you tried updating the P400 firmware for this issue?

Is a BBWC installed?

 

Technically speaking P400 should be able to handel multiple Spare Drives.

If you haven't already, try upgrading to the latest ACU for Windows for your server.  It has fixed any number of problems for me over the years.  Good luck!

 

*edit* Whoops!  Just re-read your post.  I notice in your screen shot that the little yellow exclamation point is showing on your P400. This means that some ACU process is underway.  Normally, no changes to arrays can be made while in this state.  I wonder if the problem went away after the controller finished its task...

We have 50 identical servers and only this one so far has this error.
