ML330 G2 - MegaRAID IDE Spy

Details:
ML330 G2 with 4 IDE drives installed. MegaRAID IDE Spy is running. Last week The MegaRAID IDE Spy icon reported a drive error. We had to re-boot over the weekend to pick up some MS patches.

Question:
How does one determine which drive had the error. The 'activitylog.txt' file is empty. The MegaRAID IDE Spy only has three options; 1) Stop monitor media error 2) Erase error log 3) Quit spy.

TIA,
Mark

If you have the HP Management Agents installed (automatically installed during Smartstart install), you can connect to the server's homepage on http://servername:2301 and check out the status of the ATA controller + disks.

Rgds, Gert.

We checked the server using http://servername:2301. It's the same information we see using Insight Manager. It showed all the drives as operational.

Back to my original question: MegaRAID IDE Spy reported a drive error - How do we determine which drive?

I'll second the question. I've got the same error, and the Survey report (see screenshot attached) doesn't show any errors. Should I ignore the Spy warning?
