Indicator lights on HP U320 hot-swap drives

Can someone provide a link that describes what these indicators mean? Obviously the blinking arrow means I/O is happening, but what does the center disk icon mean when it's NOT lit? I'm adding some to a DL380 and the diagnostics report everything is ok with them but the center disk icon is NOT lit.

They're the 74GB 10K drives but it looks like all varieties of the hot-swap U320s have the same indicators on front.

Thanks.

Hi Ed,

it depends on the connected controller, but usually the arrow indicates activity and the disk symbol in the middle is off if the disk is not configured to an array.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Torsten,

Thanks for the explanation. It's a 5i controller and they're newly installed and not configured yet. Now it makes sense why the indicators are off.

The SCSI Hard Drives has Three Ledâ s at front.
Green Arrow = Drive Access
Green Cylinder = Online
Amber Cylinder with X = Drive Failure

they are 9 possible combinations for this diodes.

if the arrow is green and the others are off is because the hdd is ok but is not part of an array

Juan,

I tried to RTFM but I couldn't find the FM in any of HP's documents - that's why I asked for a link.

Juan,

I knew what RTFM was, but I confess that I had to Google PEBKAC.

No worries. His profile IS funny!
