I have a HP DL160 G6 Server with 4 HP SAS drive, firmware have been updated to the latest on the HD and the Smart Array...
The issue im having is that one of the disk have a steady amber light turned on while the activity led keeps flashing when there is activity... The amber led stays amber for a couple of ours and then the led turn off. Activity led keeps flashing always.
Accordingly to HP that behavior is the sign of a malfunctioning disk but the smart array administrator (windows application) says that there is no problem or issues on the array/volume/disk.
This only happens on one of the 4 drives installed on the server.
Should i just change the drive or is there any other tool or test that can be done to determine the drive status.?
All 4 drives are the same model/brand and are HP manufactured feb 2013, Server is updated - Bios, P410, Drivers, HD drives. Windows 2012 R2 HD unit model :EF0300FARMU
