sas drives may well need new firmware get the disk model go to hp .com get latest firmware



The model number you can get remotely by going in to Hp tools and the array diagnostic utility , and on to the array controller , and onto the physical disc a model number it has this type of format BF14684970 ,when here you can press control f to get a search box open , just type the word Model in there to help with the search..

This is how we thank in the forum

correct psp pack does not cause data losss
you can also boot from this cd if you want and run diagnostics , offline that is best choice,


also paste the iml log here too i will check the iml log and also the array diagnostic logs

subashbl870 it would be nice of you to assign points to each individual question,
i have also replied to your sim questions
thanks
