HDD with status Avail, cannot add to spare

Hi All,

I have a MSA P2000. I have the problem when I want to add a new hard drive to the Global spare. When I set through the web gui, had the status of a hard drive into a Global Spare. but there is not a minute, the hard drive returns the Avail status. I also tried adding it to a dedicated spare, but the result is the same. I have also tried via CLI, the result is same as well. Is there a system or hardware malfunction here?

I attach an error log.

Thanks you

Re: HDD with status Avail, cannot add to spare

Hello,

 

According to what the attached screenshot is showing, the drive is responding with Event code 55. If you look up that event code in the MSA Event Guide it is indicating the drive is failing with a Smart Trip event.  I suggest you try using a new drive as a global spare.

The latest Event Guide can be found on HPE Storage Information Library: http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/us/en/storage/info-library/index.aspx

Cheers,
Shawn
