I have several Supermicro servers with LSI Megaraid controllers, 9266-8i. One recently lost a drive; I replaced it as usual, but it is still beeping on reboot. It is set up as RAID 10 + hotspare.
MegaCli64 -AdpEventLog -GetEvents -f events.log -aALL && cat events.log shows me:
Event Description: Global Hot Spare created on PD 08(e0xfc/s0) (global,rev) Event Description: Reminder: Potential non-optimal configuration due to drive PD 08(e0xfc/s0) commissioned as emergency spare
Since the beep pattern is 1 second on, 3 seconds off, which is the code for "SPEAKER_HOTSPARE_ENTRY - A hot spare drive has completed the rebuild process and has been brought into the array", I assume this is the root of the problem. I have updated to the latest firmware, since the release notes mentioned the "Potential non-optimal configuration" message, but no change.
Anyone have an idea on how to clear this?
