Hi

Please check if the server has a SCSI backplane. If there is one please reseat the same and restart the server.
Now that you updated the firmware i think this is one last thing we can try.

Hi.

This server has a lot of problem, the backplane was change. The principal problem with this server was the DLT unit. After the upgrades of fw, the error 1720 apper.

Some Ing. recomended the erase the RAID, and other recomended change the disk... one bye one.

Re: PL 1600 With Smart Array 3200

Are these HP/Compaq drives attached to the 3200? Sometimes when third party drives are attached it will incorrectly report problems with drives (usually predictive failures).

Another thing you will want to look at will be applying the M&P (monitoring and performance) patch. It could be the issue described in this advisory:

The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
