Perc h700 Seagate 12TB RAID1

Dear all,

I've just configured two disks in raid 1 [ ST12000NM0008 ] on my R710 gen 2

All good for now but for the past days the green lights from caddies went off, they worked in the first place,

Also i think the idrac express is faulty because it changes the fan speed randomly, i've managed to fix it temporarily by resetting it to default, it stopped being weird, if i configure the management nw it starts to go crazy again

Firmware is latest for: h700, bios, idrac, lifecycle

Thank you for you reading my issue,

Best Regards,

First, probably you might need to check if the RAID controller is up to date firmware, also the iDRAC and BIOS. 


If you're using a non-Dell drive, you are more likely to face issues. The firmware on the drives aren't so called compatible with the system firmware. 


Next would be try doing a RACADM RACRESET. Link for steps: https://dell.to/2TmQ4mz
