We have the following issue: 4x identical R320 servers, Windows 7, with following HDD configuration:
Disk1: HDD 500GB (System)
HDD2: SSD Samsung SSD 860 PRO 512GB
HDD3: HDD WD Red Pro 2TB
No RAID configured.
The HDD2 is used for data recording, generating ~ 500 KB/s traffic.
After 1 month of operation, all four T320 servers were found in the same state: HDD2 disappeared!
Examining system event log shows the following pattern:
~200 events: Warning,bcraid3,129
with several other disk-related events:
Error,Disk,7,The device, \Device\Harddisk1\DR1, has a bad block.
Warning,Ntfs,57,The system failed to flush data to the transaction log. Corruption may occur.
Error,Ntfs,55,The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume \Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy10.
Any idea what that could be?
This could be an unsupported driver or firmware issue, as neither Windows 7 nor this SSD are supported on the R320 (see https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/samsung-860-pro-mz-76p512bw-solid-state-drive-512-gb-sata-6gb-s... - this SSD is intended for client PC usage). You could try installing available drivers and firmware for Windows 2008 R2, as there are similarities between 2008 R2 and Windows 7.
