Hi markum fuadi,

the same symbol is on other 2 drives(1 &5) as well in the screenshot...

this warning comes for various reasons and that includes 1 loop lost etc..can you upload 1 sssu config as that will tell us the story of these disks.....

2ndly..in an EVA if you want 2 replace a drive.first you have 2 ungroup it ,if it has not been ungrouped automatically, then replace with new one and regroup it...

Re: Populated (data disk) with the warning symbol on EVA4400

As stated above, you have several disks with warning. You should look in the "Disk Drive" tab to see if they have the state "One loop connection lost".

In the EVA4400 this is a very common situation due to the buggy firmware on the I/O modules. If the EVA does not have the latest firmware (09522000 on the controllers and 073 on the I/O modules), ask HP to update it, they are doing it on all customers.

Do NOT replace disks. The problem are NOT the disks.
