HP Proliant DL380 G7 faulty hard disk not picked up by any applications..

Hi

I wontder if anyone can help.

I have an HP DL380 G7 server running Vmware ESXi 5.5.0 OEM.  I noticed that one of the HDDs had developed a fault as the red light was on.  I had checked HP SIM (running on multiple servers), Veeam One monitoring, VMware client and web clients which neither had picked up the fault.  Luckily i noticed the light on the HDD myself.

Anyway, i have since spojken to HP chat and they advise i speak with enterprise and log a case: http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/portal/site/hpsc?  however it would appear we ned support contract with them,...

So im here now instead.

Anyone got ideas as to why this failed to work?

Thanks

Hi Churchhouse,

Any more information on this? Any issues showing on the "Systems Insight Display" ? Is it definetely red and not amber?

Cheers
