MSA70 Storage Array

I came into this company in Feb of this year.
They have a MSA70 Dtorage Array hooked to an HP server. The old admin had RAID reports sent to his email.

I now get his emails. I recieved this report today. Notice the @@ ######## @@ section after a drive, whats that mean? I do see I have 2 drives failed. I replace those in morning. Thanks for your help.

I will today when the new drives show up, but what is this:

The part with the -24,7 +24, 7 etc.

Is that an indication I have more drives failing? Thanks for your quick response.

Re: MSA70 Storage Array

I will not upgrade firmware before I replace these drives. I would DEFINETLY need more info on upgrades, as there is a database on here that if lost would make our buisness go down for DAYS before we could restore it. I just really want to know what the @@ ###, ### @@ means.

I am not willing to lose my data.
I understand a firmware shouldn't harm any thing data wise, but that's risky. Does anyone know what those @@ symbol section means? Thanks!!

Re: MSA70 Storage Array

Hi Darrell,

power cycle the server and storage once if u have a downtime.
check the status in Online as well as offline ACU.
Share the latest ADU report for us to check the issue further

Re: MSA70 Storage Array

Well all I wanted to know was the @@ symbol section.

If it is drives going bad, was wanting to make sure I order more. But all I am getting is "TAKE RISK" suggestions. Thanks for your help anyways. Have a great day!!
