On of our HP Proliant DL320 G4's is reporting a failure. It's running Windows 2003 and configured using the built in software SATA Raid.
The array manager shows only one drive attached labelled "Port 1" and so it's in a degraded state.
I have the replacement drive sitting on my desk and I'm all ready to go to the hosting centre to swap it out... My question is... how do I know which drive to pull?
The on board software raid on the HP's does NOT show any lights on the disks and therefore it is not possible to see which one has failed, which one is working or the ability to blink a specific drive.
Is there a simple rule that Port 0 is on the left and Port 1 is on the right?
