Re: Insight Diagnostic result - hard disk failed

hi


First thing I can see is:

you got a very very old HP insight Diagnostics version 7.5 (May 2006)


so my recommendations are:

update Proliant Support Pack which will update controller driver, insight diagnostics tool and Array Diagnostic utility.

and after that run Firmware CD (this is for the controller)
http://tinyurl.com/2v8lpg

and also update HDDs firmware if it is applicable
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c01296286

Do this run HP insight Diagnostics again also Array Diagnostic Utility and post Both again in case you got the error again

I'll be waiting for the results

Re: Insight Diagnostic result - hard disk failed

hi


those are 3 steps
PSP (Proliant Support Pack)
Firmware CD
and Firmware for HDDs if applicable(it depends on HDD Model)

something else -> PSP all the time ask for rebooting...

----
ok try this workaround

1. install Insight Management Agents
http://tinyurl.com/2gwdw8

2. HP Insight Diagnostics Online
http://tinyurl.com/yvkw7c

3. Driver e200
http://tinyurl.com/yo3vok

3. dont reboot even if the applications ask for that

4. and run diagnostics again

let me know the results

Re: Insight Diagnostic result - hard disk failed

hi

for slow networking you can try, some advices are:
1. disable TOE / RSS in network configuration utility

2. disable TCP chimney - RSS

3. check speed is automatic both ends (server - switch)

Re: Insight Diagnostic result - hard disk failed

Hi,

clear the IML. As far as I know, everytime you run Insight diags, it checks first the IML for errors. If the HDD do not have the Fault LED(red) on, then this is a false message.
Update the Firmware of the HDD too, it can be "incompatible" with the conroller's firmware & try to make the test with the a current version of Smartstart.

Re: Insight Diagnostic result - hard disk failed

hi

well that is not the whole report

did you install the whole proliant support pack?

did you update also HDDs and controller firmware?

would you mind uploading a array diagnostic utility report too?

Re: Insight Diagnostic result - hard disk failed

hi

I meant the array diagnostic utility report (ADU) that was the ACU you uploaded it

I can see you have that tool too I saw it in version control agent screenshot

you open that utility so I can check firmware for your controller and HDDs
