In Windows Server 2012R2 Event Viewer shows error ID 15:

Log Name:      System
Source:        disk
Date:          9/29/2014 3:16:49 PM
Event ID:      15
Task Category: None
Level:         Error

Description:   The device, \Device\Harddisk6\DR82, is not ready for access yet.

Where do I find a list of these devices? These hard disks? How can I find more details about which disk is throwing the error?

  • You could try SNMP – captcha Oct 2 '14 at 21:51
  • @captcha I'm not sure what you're referring to. Would you explain, please? – slybloty Oct 6 '14 at 18:21
  • SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) can be added as a service to Windows. With an SNMP client you can then query all sorts of information of a system, such as all the various disks and their details. You could see if the SNMP names for your disks give you the information you want. It may be a long shot.. – captcha Oct 6 '14 at 22:37
