comment HP DL180 G6 amber light but drive is OK
Thank you for the suggestion and the link. I ran the automatic firmware update from the SPP DVD and now the correct information shows in hpacucli. Rebooting the server cleared the amber LED on the replaced drive, so I'll have to wait until we have another failure to see if the firmware updates have also resolved the original issue.

Yep, they are all HP drives. The server contains 2 160 GB drives (spare P/N 530932-001) in a RAID 1 mirror and 23 500 GB drives (spare P/N 508035-001) in a RAID 5. The drive in question is the drive #1 in the chassis, it's a 160 GB drive and part of the RAID 1 mirror.

@ewwhite, thanks for the info. I included the hpacucli output. And now that I look at it a little more closely, I noticed that all of the drives show the same location (physical, box, and bay IDs). That doesn't seem quite right...
