Spare drive status change

The following message comes up occasionally during the day on Insight Manager on our three ML530 servers with the SYS volume of NetWare running on mirrored drives with an online spare in the same array. The same message comes up almost every second when a full Mcafee Netshield virus scan is running during the weekend although the spare drive is working fine.

'Spare Drive Status Change' alarm received from SYDNDS03 at 10:04AM on

A 'Spare Drive Status Change' trap signifies that the status of a Compaq
Drive Array spare drive has changed.

Spare Status : Unknown
Controller Slot Number : 1
Port : 1
Spare Drive Bay : 2

I have already upgraded CIM to 4.80, firmware for Smart 3200 controller to 4.44, and also firmware for the harddisks

Re: Spare drive status change

Try upgrading to CIM 4.90 , if problem still exist , run the Array Diagnostic Utility . Problem may also be the result of the virus scan checking the drive .
