Raid Advice On DL360 G7

Hi.

 

I am quite familiar with HP Proliant servers and Also Windows Server OS's

 

But today I was called out to a DL360 G7 running SBS2011.

 

It has in total 4 Hot Swap Drives and one of them is flashing amber.

 

Usually I would go into the HP ACU APP underwindows and find out what the raid situation is and the steps to take.

 

But when I go into ACU it says no controllers detected.

 

I can only presume that this is because the SBS2011 is running virtualised under VMWare ESXi 5.0.0.

 

I am not familiar at all with this Virtualisation Host

 

I have posted a questions on VMWares website and they have given me a very long winded way of looking at the raid array and finding out the issue with the drive.

 

So I was wondering is there anyway of getting the raid and drive info under windows ?

 

Any help greatly recvd.

 

Thanks in advance.

You can try logging in to ILO and looking at the IML from there. I think it will log drive predictive failures, which I think is what's happening there.

The system info screen also has a "Drives" tab so you can look at the current drive status (I like having that option, something they added in ILO 3).
