va7410:one HD's Fault Led is on, and waring message in armdsp

dear all,
one of a va7410's hard disk(M/D13)'s Fault LED is on, but in amrdsp -a output, all the disks' status is good, and all the disks' state is Included. following messages could be read in armdsp -a output:
OPERATIONS IN PROGRESS

The array is SCRUBBING.

WARNINGS

WARNING: The configuration of the subsystem is such that one or more drives has only a single path of access to it.

what could be the problem? should i replace M/D13 and would it seal the waring?

thanks a lot

You have 3 equal threads (I had problems to connect to the site too). Consider to close.


Can you post the armdsp output? Maybe 1 path for M/D13 has failed (dual pathed disks).

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

it seems like what you said, one path of M/D13 is failed. and you could read the armdsp -a output in attached file. what should i do to deal with the problem? just replace M/D13? if so, pulling out M/D13 would cause the array to ballancing, at the right time, could i just push the new disk in that empty slot or wait for the balancing to finish?

thanks a lot

Re: va7410:one HD's Fault Led is on, and waring message in armdsp

If you remove a disk, you MUST wait until the rebuild is finished. This will prevent problems.

BTW, I noticed you are using an old firmware A100 - this could be A140. The Update will bring more performance and reliability.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: va7410:one HD's Fault Led is on, and waring message in armdsp

hi,Torsten:
what i mean is would it seal all the problem if i just replace M/D13?
furthermore, how to update the firmware?

after all, thank you for your opinion
Torsten.

Re: va7410:one HD's Fault Led is on, and waring message in armdsp

I hope so. If a single disk has only 1 path it is very likely a disk problem (the attention LED is confirming this IMHO).

Regarding the firmware:

You can get the files from the web, but I never found the instruction there.
Ask your HP support and decide to let HP do the upgrade or do it yourself.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

The files are here, but DON'T do the upgrade without the instructions!
