Re: NO amber lights on predictive failure disk

I had this many times. I'm testing disks that come back from customers and most of them have predictive errors. Some have the yellow LED illuminated and some not. Those can only be identified through the Array Config Utility (mark and blue LED).

I assume this is a question of the firmware level of the drive.
