rp4440 bad disk

i have a rp4440 11i. i have an external ds2300 enclosure with 14 36GB drives. i have vg01, vg02 and vg03 are split on the enclosure. when i boot my system does not reconize vg02. the system claims all LV's. the enclosure is split between 2 smartarray 6402 controllers. when i run sautil in the logical drive summary it reports ld 1 failed. however in the scsi device summary it reports all drives with a status of OK. how do i determine which drive has failed? sautil also reports the LD's with raid 0 no fault tolerance. when hp setup the system i was told they were mirrored. any ideas? jim

Re: rp4440 bad disk

Hi

This is regarding your data and disks..
I would rather log a case with HP. utilize if you have a valid support contract.

are the status LEDs of all disks are fine?

sautil also reports the LD's with raid 0 no fault tolerance. ==>

If yes , if there is a config mismatch, I would request you to log a case with HP.

by the way,

when i boot my system does not reconize vg02.
==> did you mean you are not able to activate the VG? If yes, what error messages are you getting?

Re: rp4440 bad disk

when i boot it gives me an error like vg02 not available or unrecognizable. i will write it down next time. the problem seems to be in ld 1 of the controller config. sautil reports it failed but it does not id the specific drive. last time this happened it pointed to a bad drive and it was replaced. i was not here then. is there a proceedure for replacing a bad drive like this? i have done this in the past on unix but only with software mirroring. thanks for your help. jim

This must be plug and play. Once you changed, array will reconfigure itself.
