new disks degraded raid in omreport

We just replaced the old failed disks.


We checked with megacli and new disks are online and running.

 megacli -PDList -aALL | awk '/Firmware\ state:/'
Firmware state: Online, Spun Up
Firmware state: Online, Spun Up
Firmware state: Online, Spun Up
Firmware state: Online, Spun Up
Firmware state: Online, Spun Up
Firmware state: Online, Spun Up
Firmware state: Online, Spun Up
Firmware state: Online, Spun Up


But we got the following alert from nagios

Physical Disk 0:0:0 [Seagate ST3450857SS, 450GB] on ctrl 0 is Spinning Down
Physical Disk 0:0:1 [Seagate ST3450857SS, 450GB] on ctrl 0 is Spinning Down

in omreport it is as following:

omreport storage pdisk controller=0 | awk '/Name/,/State/'
Name                      : Physical Disk 0:0:0
State                     : Spinning Down
Name                      : Physical Disk 0:0:1
State                     : Spinning Down
Name                      : Physical Disk 0:0:2
State                     : Online

here is the controller details.

RE: new disks degraded raid in omreport

Hi saravanan_alatest,

Are the drives hotspares or are they participating in the array? Were there hotspares that took over for these drives? What distro of Linux are you running? You may want to update the PERC firmware, the newer versions fixed some things with replacing drives.

Thanks,

RE: new disks degraded raid in omreport

Hi Josh,

Thanks for the reply. Yes we have configured raid 10 with 8 drives. We replaced 3 drives by hot swapping. All replaced drives states are 'Spinning Down'

State                     : Spinning Down
Name                      : Physical Disk 0:0:1
