Question about StorCase 9 Bays Data Silo DS550 Storage Cabinet
There is a flashing "F" on the front of one of the drive slots. Yes, normally, I would think that this would signify a failed drive. But, I just replaced this drive. Before I replaced the drive there was an audible alarm and our adaptec storage software indicating that it was a failed drive. This time there is no audible alarm and the adaptec storage software gives no indication that the drive has failed. What does the flashing "F" on the front of the drive slot mean? Thanks!
Yup, it's the right model number. I got a hold of a support person at storcase. They said the flashing "F" usually indicates a bad fan. They also said that the flashing "F" could indicate a bad drive but since there are no audible alarms, my Adaptec Storage Manager did not detec a bad drive, and I just replaced the drive it is unlikely it is another bad drive. I just have to pull the drive out to give them the model # of the drive carrier and they said they would know for sure. Thanks!

The front panel display contains seven (7) lights which provide the following information: ? Power-On - Steady green glow indicates that power is being supplied to the Data Silo chassis. ? Temperature Warning - Flashing red indicates that internal operating temperature has reached 43? C (109° F). ? Blower 1 or 2 Failure - Flashing red indicates a blower has failed. ? Power Supply 2 Failure - Flashing red indicates second power supply has failed. ? Power Supply 1 Failure - Flashing red indicates first power supply has failed. ? Mute - When switch is depressed, a steady yellow glow indicates the audible warning sounds have been disabled. Depress switch again to enable sounds. ? Reset - Depress switch to reset chassis and clear any error conditions. The specs on the DS550 do not say anything about an F at all? Did you put the correct model number?
