replacing a hard drive on a ml370 G1 server

I saw in Windows event viewer that "slot 0, port 2, bay 1, the status of this drive has changed to 4". 4 meaning "predictive failure". I need to know which drive to replace. I have 3 drives A0,A1,A2. All the lights are green and I don't want to take out the wrong drive. Also, compaq array utility does not work.

Hi Long:

You can boot up to the smartstart cd 7.30
- run the Array Diagnostics utility from the maint. tab. and will tell you which drive has failed or even you can run the Array configuration utility from there (Gui) and go to physical view or status message
- will tell you what scsi id failed
- in physical view you can highlight that drive and the ACU will Flash the drive for you.
