This should be an old story, but it happened just couple weeks ago. System is as in the topic, with two disks in RAID1, one day one of the disks fell off. I ordered new disks for future use and continued work.

Couple of days after a failure, I looked on HP ACU and I wasn't happy. It said:

Code 730 146GB 1-Port SAS Drive at Port 1I: Box 1 Bay 2 is a part of a logical drive that is not supported by the current configuration. Any configuration command (e.g. logical drive creation, array expansion, etc.) or modification to the controller will result in the loss of all existing data on the disabled logical drive(s).

Does that mean that on that "new" disk was something else? Was that owerwritten by a RAID rebuild?

Short after that (week and a half) second disk failed. I looked in the ILO and there was another information in Integrated Management Log:

POST Error: 1786-Drive Array Recovery Needed POST Error: 1747-Slot X Drive Array - Unsupported Array Configuration Detected - More logical drive(s) configured than this controller model can support. All logical drive(s) have been disabled.

What does that actually mean? System was not restarted since then. I would be glad if someone explained. Guess it is time to change that ol' scrap, but ...you know. Beer is on me ;-)

edit: heres the config:

    How many logical drives are configured? Can you post the array configuration? – ewwhite Mar 30 at 17:30

Please see the error description here: http://h17007.www1.hpe.com/docs/iss/shared/gen9/error/Advanced/Content/247994.htm

I don't think it's a good use of time troubleshooting the specifics of your setup because the firmware on the controller and disks is so out of date.

Your Smart Array P410 is using firmware version 3.66 from from 2011 and your disks also need attention because they're on HPD2 from 2009. Where did you get this equipment?!?

Please update the firmware of all of your devices and ensure the cache module is healthy and has a battery/FBWC unit attached.

This product advisory from HP explains the situation in detail: https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=mmr_kc-0105422

  • Thanks for that, I already got proliant servicepack, but do I need to worry about that "Any configuration command or modification to the controller will result in the loss of all existing data" after I perform update of the disk/controller firmware? – borubart Mar 30 at 19:33
  • Your setup is old and out of date. Typically these are not intrusive updates... but I don't know how you got to this point or where this equipment was sourced, or how it went 10 years without updates. – ewwhite Mar 30 at 19:34
  • Legacy, as i said it should be discarded long time ago. Nevertheless I will prepare for the update, and plan migration. Many thanks. – borubart Mar 30 at 19:40
  • Vote accordingly. Let your server finish the rebuild first. – ewwhite Mar 30 at 20:43
