Failed drives in RAID 5 on ML350 G5

We have an older HP ML 350G5 server that has reported 2 hard drive failures in a RAID 5 array and the server is still running. There are 3 drives in the array with a hot spare,

How do I know which drive to change first if 2 drives are rerported to have failed?

below is the status report

Re: Failed drives in RAID 5 on ML350 G5

What controller does that server use?

Do you have hpacucli or hpssacli installed?

For either of these, dump the result of this command in order to look in your configuration and status:

hpacucli> ctrl all show status

or

hpssacli> ctrl all show status

We'll go from there
