if the server is still functional, one would assume you have some type of RAID configured and this is protecting your data. Most RAID levels (except 0) can handle a single disk failure. You need to determine what RAID level you have configured using a tool like HPSSA or hpssacli (older tools were ACU and hpacucli) once you know what your dealing with you should then replace the faulty drive.
