Question about HP StorageWorks MSA30 14X 72G U320 15K 1TB TOTAL 302970-B21 (302970001)

MSA 30 unplugged HDD

I have a HP DL580 G4 connected to a MSA 30 dual channel (Smart Array 6404). On each channel there is configured RAID 1+0 with hot spare. The drives are Ultra320 SCSI 72GB, 15K running firmware version HPB1 or HPB6. If I try to start the server with one HDD unplugged, the ADU is reporting both the unplugged and the hot spare as Missing or Bad HDD and the array cannot be rebuild. Any help would be appreciated.

Recently I had replaced one of HDD of my DL580 service Raid 5 configuration. After that everything working fine including user connectivity and database access. My question is both the LEDs on replace

After you replaced the drive, did you rebuild the RAID array? Some of the higher end RAID controllers will try to rebuild automatically (if set to do so) but most must be rebuilt manually.

Hi does anyone know how to configure the drive array on a compaq ml350?

This model comes with Smart Array 5302/32 Array Controller (Standard with Array Models only) when posting, the server will display the controler mentioned before Smart Array 5302 and an option (press f8) once you have entered this section called ORCA you will have a menu to create, view or delete Raid.
Make sure you have the hdds properly connected before starting so that all hdd are recognized
Good Luck

A well meaning~idiot teenager changed my set up on my Dell Dimension in BIOS to Intell ARRAY.. now I cannot bring Windows up

If the well meaning teenager took a non-raid configuration and created a RAID array, then any data on the drives was destroyed.

If you reply with the RAID array and HDD status information from the boot screen (THE intel Raid Controller will report the status of the array, degraded, normal or Failed and the status of each HDD member or non-member disk.) With that information I MAY be able to assist in getting the system to boot

Drive array problem

Hi Nick ,

As of now you can Select "F2" to accept data loss and re-enable logical drive. This Load OS Normally .
It seems that one of the HDD in the RAID 5 has failed , Did you notice any LED indications like red or amber on the HDDs ?? if so get that hdd replaced . Make sure the Failed HDD is replaced .
You can run the Array Diagnostic Utility from HP System tools to check the Failed Drives and also frimware version of the controller . If the frimware is not latest Update it from HP website. DL380 G4 should have Smart Array 6i controller .

Hope This was Helpful
cheers :)

I can´t use a serial ata disk in a proliant 350

I know ATA disks are cheaper , but they don't last as long or are less reliable.

I do not recommend mixing SCSI and ATA .

Use one or the other , not both.

Do not try , unless your server is non critical.
If it is non critical , why bother with server , a PC will do as well.
