Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've installed the Open Manage Server Administrator on my Dell T100 to monitor RAID Controller and disks. From the Physical Controller report web page I see a table listing the two disks I have but under the column "Failure Predicted" I see the capacity in GB! is it an error or what?

If I expand the details for the also here I can read the disk capacity both in the capacity field but also in the Failure Predicted!

Server: DELL T100;
OS: Windows 2008 R2 Web Edition with IIS7 and an instance of SQL Server web edition;
Raid controller: SAS 6/iR;
Hard Disk: Seagate ST500NM0011;
Dell OpenManage Software: Version 6.5.0;

have you tried using a different browser, different OMSA version, different screen resolution? –  dyasny Jan 8 '13 at 16:40

This is an alignment issue of the columns, not sure what causes this. All responses from Bus Prtocol down should be shifted down one row.

the fact that the HD has a Predictive Failure has nothing to do with the size, it's just the Hard Drive is going to fail, you just need to change the HD with the predictive failure, contact Dell Tech Support and they will guide you in the process of solving the issue.
