Hello,

open a Command View session and check the Enclosures folder. You should see a (!) mark at the affected enclosure. If you expand that particular enclosure, you will see which bay is the failed disk located in.

The same applies to the Disk Groups folder where you can check which of your diskgroup is affected.

One more detail, the Disk Enclosures folder is located under the "Hardware" folder.
