I am using a Proliant server DL380 G4 (kinda old) and I was testing my RAID... just to know if it really works (using the native RAID that comes with the server), so, I took out one hard disk and work great, I turned it off and today I restarted asked me to disable logical disk or accept data loss and enable the logical disk, first time I press disable, so, when it load the OS was not working, so,I reboot and I accepted other option (accept data loss and load logical disk) and it worked fine... the problem now is that the hard disk I removed (that was the first disk) has the light of -> on, and the light of the hard disk is intermitent all time, I dont know why, I am not so familiar with this hard disk, my question is, do I have to do something different to enable it again?? is the RAID still working? according to the info of the page(http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?prodSeriesId=1143914&objectID=c00263437) is
Activity status (for the indicator "->" ) On = Drive activity Flashing = High activity on the drive or drive is being configured as part of an array Off = No drive activity Online status (for hard disks) On = Drive is part of an array and is currently working Flashing = Drive is actively online Off = Drive is offline.
Do I have to wait until the RAID refresh itself or do something more? I am working with Debian 6
