DL380 G5 Replacement drive shows failed too!!!!

Hi boys and girls.

 

I have a DL380 G5 with 5 drives on raid 5.

1 failed.

I replaced it.

that went to fail too.

thought it was doa so ordered replacement.

that went to fail too.

 

Am I looking at a replacement backplane or firmware problems?

 

Cheers :-)

hi,

 

It's possible that another drive has some read/write errors. Can You please attach an ACU report?

 

Thanks

I had the same issue on few servers(DL180G6 and DL360G7 servers), Even after replacing with the new drive for several times, it still showing as failed. Firmware upgrade didn't help
