When I go into my HP Array Configuration Utility, there is no errors and and warnings. No visible amber lights either. Should I swap out the disks? This Windows server lost the storage about 4 times this week.

Yes, you have some prefailure warnings, get them swapped out ASAP.

The storage just keeps going offline as soon as we put any stress onto it. I'm rebuilding one disk at a time. Will probably take awhile! Thanks. – lbanz Sep 27 '12 at 11:15
I can imagine so, but it needs to be done, good luck with it. – Chopper3 Sep 27 '12 at 12:15

I recommend that you search for more information about this error before you start replacing any hdd's.

Info from HP support site about this:

If you don't care about the cost of replacing the disks, replace them as soon as you can. You could always do the diagnostics of the disks on a second test server later, just to determine if your disk actually are bad or if it's the HPID Tool that is reporting false positives.
