DL320 G5 SATA Drive LED light

It is interesting that one of the SATA HD has no LED light ON while another SATA HD has a great LED light ON. Is that normal staus? Any webpage to the product manual? Thanks,

Issue common with ML350 G4p or G5.

Wen HDD connected to the 6 port SATA controller, or with Backplane Firmware revision 1.72.

Other than that, What How many drives are present ? What RAID ?

There wont be a LED if the HDD is inactive in Mirrored RAID.

Cheers !

Hi George Liu

Embedded SATA with RAID 0/1?

have you tried swapping the hard drives?

Re: DL320 G5 SATA Drive LED light

I have a DL320 G5 with two SATA drives connected to the embedded SATA controller and RAID enabled (RAID1).

According to the documentation that came with the drives the LED lights on the drives will not illuminate when connected to the embedded SATA controller.

The only LED that displays is the HDD activity LED on the server (far right LED).

HP has a SAS and SATA LED combinations explained document located at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=c00596191&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN
