I have been having some issues with intermittent failure and rebuild messages on our HP DL160 G6 with P410 controller.
As part of troubleshooting I replaced the SATA cable, and on boot up, now the controller is stuck in Interim Recovery Mode. It thinks that a drive has failed but is still connected(?), and there's an unassigned drive that it hasn't started rebuilding to.
=> ctrl all show config Smart Array P410 in Slot 0 (Embedded) (sn: ) Port Name: 1I Port Name: 2I array A (SATA, Unused Space: 0 MB) logicaldrive 1 (50.0 GB, RAID 5, Interim Recovery Mode) logicaldrive 2 (10.9 TB, RAID 5, Interim Recovery Mode) physicaldrive 1I:0:3 (port 1I:box 0:bay 3, SATA, 0 MB, Failed) physicaldrive 2I:0:5 (port 2I:box 0:bay 5, SATA, 4000.7 GB, OK) physicaldrive 2I:0:6 (port 2I:box 0:bay 6, SATA, 4000.7 GB, OK) physicaldrive 2I:0:8 (port 2I:box 0:bay 8, SATA, 4000.7 GB, OK) unassigned physicaldrive 2I:0:7 (port 2I:box 0:bay 7, SATA, 4000.7 GB, OK)
I have tried
ctrl slot=0 array A remove drives=1I:0:3 to remove the failed one, and
ctrl slot=0 array A add drives=2I:0:7 to add the unassigned one to start the rebuild.
Both commands fail with the following error:
Error: This operation is not supported with the current configuration. Use the "show" command on devices to show additional details about the configuration. Reason: Array is transforming
It's a RAID 5 array of 4x4TB drives.
Any suggestions, please?
