predictive failure and failure

Dear Hpe community


I have HP gen 8 dl 380 server with 500gb x 6 hard drives, during the weekend we had a power failure and the server went down.

When we come baclk to work we boot the server and we got 3 drivers with predictive failure warning and one failure drive.

We replace the failure drive and for more than 3 days, it is in the rebuild status.

The virtual machine within the server are unaccusable and sometimes it shows some respond.

Please advise.

Hi @MAZ123

it is approximately 15 minutes per gigabyte for the rebuild process to complete.

but 3 days for 500GB it is strange.

What is the firmware of the array controller?

did you tried to update the controller firmware with SPP?

Do you have Cache module and Battery Pack installed in your machine?

I hope you have a backup of your data - rebuilding a raid from "predictive failed" drives might fail.
