Hot swapping a bad HD on Proliant DL360 G4, HD still shows failed

Hello, 

 

Yesterday I had a drive go out on a DL 360 G4. I replaced the drive overnight and let it run. This morning there are no lights on the drive and it shows the following on the Array Diagnostic Utility:

 

SLOT SUMMARY:
   Slot Num  Slot Type  Array Controllers and Host Adapters Detected
   --------  ---------  --------------------------------------------
   SLOT 0    PCI        Smart Array 6i Controller

SLOT 0 Smart Array 6i Controller ERROR REPORT:

   Unable to communicate with drive on SCSI Port 2, Drive ID 4
   Logical drive 2 status = Failed
      SCSI Port 2, drive ID 4 failed - REPLACE



 

 Did I miss a step or is it still trying to work through it?

 

Thanks.

Did you try anothr drive?

It might be that the first replacement was faulty also?


Once a drive has rebuilt, the little 'barrel' shaped LED should go solid green to show that it is part of the logical drive.
