Re: HP-DAT drive problem

If the system/drive is under maintenance with HP, place a service call and get them to replace drive. The drive is had it. Depending on the model, you could get it replaced with out a shutdown.

Ravikanth,

I would agree with Michael entirely. Its sounds like the drive is shot especially if the leds are being extinguished, though this could be an internal cabling issue.

Either way its Stick a fork in it - its done as they say ! Call relevant Engineer.
