Server 2008 - DL380 G5 - Disk 1 Unknown

Hi,

I have just installed Server 2008 on one of our DL380 G5 servers, Disk 1 has and error of Unknown and will not allow me to do anything with the disk.

Event Viewer lists Event ID 7 - The device, \Device\Harddisk1\DR1, has a bad block.

The Microsoft recommended action:-
If this event is logged regularly, replace the hard disk drive.

So I did this with a spare drive, same error, tried a new bay, same error, restarted server each time no difference.

Am going insane!

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Resolved!

I downloaded the 'HP Array Configuration Utility (ACU) Offline CD for Smart Array' and was able to gain access to the drive.

Once Disk1 was accessable Disk0 seem to be launched into an array rebuld and a RAID 1+0 was created.
