I have an R610 that had an amber health light on Drive 0:1. The config is RAID 1 with only drives 0 and 1 installed.
Dell sent me a new replacement drive and after inserting it and the rebuild completed, the light remained yellow and the OpenManage says failure predicted.
Dell sent me a second new drive. Same thing.
Then the original Drive 0:0 started amber alerting with failure predicted in OpenManage. Replaced that drive. After rebuild, amber light remains.
What shall I try next that I have replaced both drives and Windows is working just fine and the server remains on line.
I would make sure that the server and controller are up to date and current. Once that is done then access the controller and start a Consistency Check. Let me know if that removes the Predicted Failure.
Here are the updates for the server, if needed.
If you let me know the specific raid controller in the server I can get you the necessary link.
Let me know.

I found the consistency check in the open manage software and it ran and the VIRTUAL DISK 0 passed.
THe physical disks both are still flashing amber. I will begin the software updates as soon as I come back from lunch.
Chrs...the raid controllers is a PERC 6/i. Let me know if you need anything further on that.
