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.

 

Regards

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? http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/products/service_pack/spp/index.aspx?version=Gen8.1

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.
