1720 Post Drive Array Error

Has any one had this error:

1720 - Slot (2) Drive Array SMART Drive Detects Imminent Failure
SCSI Port (1): SCSI ID (2)

Prior to rebuilding this server, this error already existed. I re-loaded smartstart, set Raid 5 array and loaded 2000 on it. Error persists !!!
I found this error on Compaqs Website with a resolution of:

The firmware upgrade is available as Option ROMPaq Version 2.52 diskette 1, available as ROMPaq SP9895.

I upgraded to 2.52 and error is still there. I ran diagnostics on the 8 hardrives, all came up clean. I think the Drive Array Controller is on the way out.
Any insight to this problem would be much appreciated.

Re: 1720 Post Drive Array Error

What is the firmware on your smart array controller?
