Best SCSI Hard Drive Diagnostic tool for HP Hard Drives?

I was wondering if anybody knows of a good utility that provides proper diagnostics for HP SCSI Hard Drives (from the Proliant Server Series). I have four hard drives that are suspected to be faulty however i need to prove that there is something wrong. The HP Insight Diagnostic does not provide enough information and other information produced by the Array Configuration Utility (ACU) does not indicate there is a problem. Plus the reports produced by the ACU are not so simple to understand because everything is written in Hex.
Can someone recommend a tool (whether it requires to be installed or burned to a CD and boot the server with it) that has the capability to fully test and scan SCSI hard drives on a server?

Try to save all your data, guess your hard disk is failing.
OK, it's just a general idea; you should check your hard disk's status with a diagnostics app:

I have a maxtor 6L080M0 hard drive that has crashed The return code is 7 Is there any way to fix this problem.


If the following determines you have hard drive failure then you may have to purchase a new HD. Follow what is recommended from the manufacturer below. READ EVERYTHING.

According to Seagate the makers of Maxtor, you have a DiamondMax 10 (6L080M0). See below or click here

My internal hard drive may be defective, how can I test it?

Question

My internal hard disk drive may be defective, how can I test it?

How can I determine if the problem is with my system or with the hard drive?

It is necessary to run the SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, or SCSIMax diagnostic before contacting Technical Support 1.800.SEAGATE (1.800.732.4283) on an internal drive that may be defective.

Answer
For Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA drives:

If this is a Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA or SATA drive, please download the SeaTools for DOS diagnostic to test it. If the drive is failing, the tests in SeaTools for DOS will indicate as such.

If the BIOS does not recognize the drive or the drive does not spin please reference Answer ID: 48

The operating system will not recognize a drive that is not formatted and partitioned. If you need help with formatting:

  • Windows 9x and ME reference Answer ID: 3076
  • Windows 2000 Answer ID: 880
  • Windows XP Answer ID: 3361
  • Windows Vista Answer ID: 3844
  • Macintosh Answer ID: 492


    For Seagate SCSI drives:
    Please download the SeaTools Enterprise Edition diagnostic.

    For Maxtor (or Quantum) SCSI drives:
    Please download the SCSIMax diagnostic.

    SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, and SCSIMax will test your S.M.A.R.T-compliant ATA, SATA, or SCSI disk drive for media defects, perform a read test, physical head test and ensure the hard drive is functioning correctly.

    If all the tests pass (no trouble found), the problem remains elsewhere in your system. Reconfirm all settings for hard drive jumpers, cables, and ATA, SATA, or SCSI controllers, and disk operating system. Consult your host controller documentation or system manufacturer for assistance with SCSI termination or ATA / SATA controller capabilities.

    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 :)
