HPACUCLI / SA-P600 Ctrl improperly reporting drives

I have 2 wd 1 tb drivers connected via a 1 to 4 cable.  When I access the array via Hpacucli on a linux server, I don't see the correct drive parameters,  any ideas?  see screen print:

 

Desktop # ./uname26 hpacucli
HP Array Configuration Utility CLI 8.28-13.0
Detecting Controllers...Done.
Type "help" for a list of supported commands.
Type "exit" to close the console.

Re: HPACUCLI / SA-P600 Ctrl improperly reporting drives

If you look closely, both drives have the same location id 0:0 and the same serial number. I have a few other drive arrays that exhibit the same issues. If (er rather when) a drive were to fail in a raid 5 or 6 array, how do I determine the failed drive, since hpacucli isn't repointing drive location info?
