We are using smart array disk controller P410 by HP on our supermicro server.
Sadly of the HDDs in a RAID10 Array was damaged and we were forced to change that specific hard disk. After 3 days and rebooting the server 2 times we are still seeing the very first warning message after changing the HDD which is saying:
Warning Status Messages ((Ready for Recovery) Logical Drive 1 (931.5 GB, RAID 1+0)) 776 (Ready for Recovery) Logical Drive 1 (931.5 GB, RAID 1+0) is queued for rebuilding.
We are worried about the issue and we decided to check the firmware update and hopefully that is up to dated and there is no update available for that.
It is noticeable that we have changed the RAID CARD with a new one with the same model as well. our raid device information:
Firmware Version 6.40 Number of Ports 2 (Internal only) Number of Arrays 3 Smart Array P410 in Slot 1 Bus Interface: PCI Slot: 1 Serial Number: PACCR9SXRCQH Cache Serial Number: PAAVPID12031NLH RAID 6 (ADG) Status: Disabled Controller Status: OK Hardware Revision: C Firmware Version: 6.40 Rebuild Priority: Medium Expand Priority: Medium Surface Scan Delay: Not Available Surface Scan Mode: High Queue Depth: Automatic Monitor and Performance Delay: 60 min Elevator Sort: Enabled Degraded Performance Optimization: Disabled Inconsistency Repair Policy: Disabled Wait for Cache Room: Disabled Surface Analysis Inconsistency Notification: Disabled Post Prompt Timeout: 15 secs Cache Board Present: True Cache Status: OK Cache Ratio: 25% Read / 75% Write Drive Write Cache: Enabled Total Cache Size: 512 MB Total Cache Memory Available: 400 MB No-Battery Write Cache: Disabled Cache Backup Power Source: Batteries Battery/Capacitor Count: 1 Battery/Capacitor Status: OK SATA NCQ Supported: True
We also runned DIAGNOSTIC REPORT Wizard and this the report of our device:
This is a very frustrating situation, Server is working but one of the HDDs of a RAID10 ARRAY is not recovered and joined to the RAID 10 Array.
What should we do and how to resolve the issue?
This is also the output of this command in HP commandline: ctrl all show config detail
I resolved the issue by changing those 3 HDDs if i faced with the issue i will follow your recent advice.
After changing the HDDs i booted the server with BIOSUPDATE cd of RAID CONTROLLER. I deleted that logical drive and re-created that and recovered the server using BARE METAL BACKUP
Everything seems fine and i don't see any error and warning in the ARRAY CONFIGURATION UTILITY.
But i see something not normal. In ACU when i click on more information for that newly created logical drive there is a section on which partitions of this drive are described and i see this suspicious line: Partition Number: 1, Size: 100 MB, Mount Point: Unknown
Mount point is drive C but why it is unknown for the RAID? Server boot up normally.
I think this should be fixed. Do you have any idea about this?
