Predictive failure on Smart Array P411 - once again


Predictive failure on Smart Array P411 - once again


our Server is an HP ProLiant DL160 G6, Smart Array P411/512 MB SAS RAID-Controller with BBU-Unit,  running Vmware ESXi 6.

Running hpssacli displays the following:

Smart Array P411 in Slot 4

   array A

      Logical Drive: 1
         Size: 931.5 GB
         Fault Tolerance: 1
         Heads: 255
         Sectors Per Track: 32
         Cylinders: 65535

         Mirror Group 1:
            physicaldrive 2E:0:5 (port 2E:box 0:bay 5, SATA, 1 TB, OK)
         Mirror Group 2:
            physicaldrive 2E:0:6 (port 2E:box 0:bay 6, SATA, 1 TB, Predictive Failure)
         Drive Type: Data
         LD Acceleration Method: Controller Cache

What are the next steps right now?

Can the Harddisk be replaced while it's running or do we have to shutdown the server? Are there further steps required after inserting the new drive? Should the drive to be replaced definitely or is it possible to repair it by the controller?


Thanks for your suggestions.

By the way: i posted this entry in the Disk-Array forum. Why is it now in "ProLiant Servers (ML,DL,SL)"?
