I just found out one of my servers are reporting hard drive error but I'm having problems extracting the information I want.

I've downloaded Acronis Drive Monitor so I could see hard drive health and serial numbers, but it only shows the raid controller and not the drives.

Any clues?


Since you are using a Dell PERC controller, you should also use the appropriate tool for managing it - Dell provides the OpenManage Server Administrator Storage Management for exactly this purpose. It will help you identify and replace the failed disk of your array.
