Okay. This is a long question, but will get a short answer: If you see "Predictive Failure" or "Failed", replace the disk. Both of those conditions are valid for the purpose of establishing a support ticket and/or warranty parts replacement from HP. "Predictive Failure" incorporates S.M.A.R.T. data as well as other heuristics to determine drive health. ...

Are you using HP hard drives? Or normal consumer drives? Do the drives have Time Limited Error Recovery? If not, the drive could lockup the controller while it tries to read a bad sector. It will take a long time for the drive to give up, so the read fails. The raid controller doesn't get a chance to try the other drive because it is stuck waiting for ...

Yes, if one drive in RAID is failed, RAID controller mark it as failed and will be read with other healthy hdd. Predictive failure means, that disk still work, but controlled notice you, that soon it will fails. If you receive read error, in your test, than you should replace your drive by another. Just buy spare drive in your local store/vendor support, ...

Debian isn't officially supported on this hardware. You'll be missing some value-add features like monitoring agents and having an easy process for installation. People have found janky workarounds, though. See: https://wiki.debian.org/HP/ProLiant and https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2015/04/msg00028.html Also: ...

Have you upgraded your firmware? Seems like the v1.8 is pretty old for the P400i controller. Having all drives OK and also fail parity seems like a bug to me. I've had a number of cases where HP shipped older firmware and doing the upgrade fixed parity initialization issues (but I needed to reconstruct the array from scratch) and significantly improved ...

Press F10 at POST to enter Intelligent Provisioning and use the HP SSA utility to configure your array. The BIOS ORCA utility is not really supposed to be used for anything other than basic functions. If this doesn't work, you have another issue. See: HP Proliant DL360 G6 Maximum Logical Drives

We are missing the "what happened before you asked this question?" information. The HP MSA2324sa is not a new product, so is this a used device? How did you get it? Where did you get it from? All you need to do is create your volumes on the MSA in the SMU. Then map those to the server over controller(s). What type of HBA(s) are you using? Did you reboot? ...

Use HP SAS disks with Smart Array P410 RAID controllers. SATA drives will downshift speed to 3.0Gbps on that controller. You can have monitoring and fan speed problems with random SATA disks on that controller. 2.5" SATA drives aren't particularly low cost or high capacity. HP SAS drives are available in 146, 300, 450, 600, 900 and 1200GB capacities and ...
