How to identify drive bay

I have a customer with an ML150 G6, that has a failing hard drive.  The customer is quite a distance from me, and has some fairly decent tech skills.  I'm certain he can replace a hot swap drive.  ACU identifies the drive as being Port 1i, Box 1, Bay 1.  How can you tell which one that is, physically?

Re: How to identify drive bay

It depends if you use an smart array controller or just the embedded controler with hotswp or non-hot-swap disks.

If you can use ACU you can turn the location (blue) LED on for hotswap drives by selecting the drive in ACU.

Hope this helps!

It's using the embedded B110i controller, and there doesn't seem to be any way to make the light blink in the ACU.

Not 100% sure about this special controller, but on all other smart arrays you just select the drive in physical view and the blue LED will go on.

 

Port 1i, Box 1, Bay 1 is the most left slot in the upper tray.

If the disk has failed, the red LED should be already on.
