Smart Array P410i Status Code 785

Hi all,

 

I've got a server that my company inherited the support for that had a failed drive in its array. I replaced the drive in early Jan, and the rebuild went fine. However, ever since the rebuild, the controller status has bee:

 

'785 - Background parity initialization is currently queued or in progress on Logical Drive 1 (1.4 TB, RAID 5). If background parity initialization is queued, it will start when I/O is performed on the drive. When background parity initialization completes, the performance of the logical drive will improve.  '

 

I know this can take up to a couple weeks sometimes, but two+ months?

 

Is there a way to force it or speed it along?


Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

If the message appears for two+ more months, then there could be some other issues, for example:

Array Utility you are using may be having some issues.  Update this software.

Array controller and hard drive firmware may have a incompatibility issue.  Update the firmware's.

Perform Array Diagnostic Utility and check the report to see if any other drive's are failing.

 

Thank You!

It used to be ESXi would cause the background initialization to never stop!

 

Take the server offline for a couple of hours into the SPP CD-rom and wait for the raid to complete initialization!

That makes sense. They do run VMs on the machine. I can't really take it offline, unfortunately. I'll have to figure something out.

you can check the status of an esxi server using the hp offline bundle included hpacucli it installs to /opt/hp/hpacucli iirc, it can query and determine the status/act on the smart array from the ESXI CLI while the server is running!
