On HP Proliant DL G6, one disk in RAID 1 on P410 array broken. It was HP EG0300FBDBR. I changed it on compatible HP model - HP EG0300FAWHV. (both 300 Gb, 10K)

But HP Array Configuration Utility still show me - that new HP EG0300FAWHV - 300 GB 2-Port SAS Drive at Port 1I : Box 1 : Bay 0 is predicted to fail soon.

New disk in server blinking green - is like "The drive is rebuilding, erasing, or it is part of an array that is undergoing capacity expansion or stripe migration."

But two days gone and status didn't change.

In RIS Event Log, last info:

I attached ADU report and screen.

Is it mean that new disk still recovering? But why its status as "predict to fail" and why so long for recovering? Why HP utility didn't mark it as rebuilding?

Where did you get the replacement drive from?

If it was a spare or used disk, there's a chance that the drive is also going to fail or enter pre-failure mode. Sometimes parts sent from HP repair are mis-picked.

Can you show the output of the HPSSACLI utility?

ctrl all show config and ctrl all show config detail
