The vast majority of 2.5" drives you'll see for ProLiants will fit in systems from G5-G7. However, Gen8 and newer HP servers use a different disk form-factor. The OP should post a photo or part or part number of the drive in question. G5 disk on left. Gen8 disk on right.

Hard drives do have a multitude of error correction methods in place to prevent data corruption. Hard drives are divided into sectors, from which some may become completely unwritable / unreadable or return wrong data through data corruption - let's call the first bad sector corruption and the latter silent data corruption.

I hate when people say that the server is "down" or "crashed". What exactly is wrong with it? The HP Smart Array E200i controller appeared in HP ProLiant G5 servers from 2006-2008. The B320i controller is featured in low-end HP ProLiant Gen8 servers, which were introduced in 2012. The disks have different drive carriers and the controllers have different ...

Resilvering (and scrubbing) involves walking the entire B-Tree of the pool, and re-silvering blocks that would have been on the missing disk.

Looks like you did an mdadm --create on "Creation Time : Thu Jun 11 23:21:12 2015", that could be a problem if you used the wrong parameters. What command line did you use? Also when the mount fails what is reported by... dmesg | tail And it's a good idea to check the SMART data on the drives to see if they are healthy. Don't despair. I often work on ...

You can also move a complete array from one controller to another, even if the controllers are on different servers.

Certain system files are not moved by MS defrag and deliberately spread on the disk. You need to use a bootable 3rd party defrag tool to do an offline defragmentation. Just google defrag bootable
