HP rp5430 Disk failure

Hello

I have a HP rp 5430. One of the disk drives have failed but the users continue to work, i think there is RAID on this machine. How do check which drive failed and what is the procedure to replace the failed drive. Does the machine have hot swop drives ?

Thanks

Re: HP rp5430 Disk failure

Good morning!!

The internal drives in an rp54xx system are 'hot-swappable', however keep in mind that if they are mirrored disks, they will have to be remirrored if changed out.

Could you please post the output of #ioscan -fnC disk

Thanx!!

Hello

Sorry the drives are not internal they are in a HP Storage Works external enclosure with 9 drives One of the drives has a orange light on. How do i check if RAID is running on the machine. If i replace the faulty drive will the machine start rebuilding the drive automatically ?

Thanks

Re: HP rp5430 Disk failure

Again, that would depend on the array. Is it a scsi or fiber, (sc10 vs fc10?)

Re: HP rp5430 Disk failure

What is the model number on the array? Can you attach the output of:

ioscan -fnk

Thanks,
Josh
What are the chances...

Re: HP rp5430 Disk failure

Hi Sakhile,

Do the external storagework front panel indicate the name of the storagework, something like AutoRaid, disk system 2100 or others.

Try give us the output of ioscan -nfk and vgdisplay -v

Thanks Everybody for the replies. I removed the failed drive and replaced with a new one. The drive started rebuilding automatically. Problem solved.

Thanks again
