Scsi Bus faults on Bl20p's

Anyone have any info on hard drives getting an excessive amount of SCSI bus faults on BL20P's. I have some blades that keep failing drives and I see many SCSI bus faults.

I am running firmware 2.58 mostly on the controllers. I am thinking faulty back planes?

Anyone? Thanks

Hello,

maybe you're right. Log a call at HP for that problem. Is the fault led on the disks static on or is it blinking? SCSI errors in the event log (if you are running Windows)?

Hi,
You could check and update the latest firmware from the link below

and as suggested by Patrick,log a call with HP so that the fault (if there is any) could be diagnosed

Yes there is a solid red fault light on when the controller fails the drives.

Hello,

lit only on one disk the red fault led or is it on all disks at the controller on? After a reboot is the disk available again? I think the controller is broken. Log a call HP. A few weeks ago I got a BL20p G3. After a reboot the controller didn't found any disks - The controller was broken. :(
Best regards,

Do you have enough power in the rack to keep all HW up?

What does that have to do with failing hard drives?
