Poweredge T410 1 Physical Disk Failure Predicted Raid 5

Hi Dell,

I need an assistance regarding our DELL Server PowerEdge T410.

Configuration in: OS C:/ drive 136.12 Raid 1

 DATA D:/ drive 272.25 Raid 5

One of the Drive in Data is Failure Predicted.

What is necessary procedure to replace the drive and also how would you know in physical that drive is failing because the drive is inside of the CASE this is a classic server Manufacture in 2009.

Unlike Today's Server.

Again this is a in DATA D:/ raid 5 configuration.

I once replace a hard drive before other Manufacturer but It was RAID 1

This is my first time to replace a drive with a Configuration of a RAID 5

"in the available task there is offline are you gonna offline first before powering off then replace the drive then turn it on again?"

"i don't see any indicator physically what drive is failing unlike nowadays server"

I JUST WANT TO BE SURE.

Thanks in advance see attached files for references.

Hello.

What is necessary procedure to replace the drive and also how would you know in physical that drive is failing because the drive is inside of the CASE this is a classic server Manufacture in 2009.

The procedure is dependent on whether or not the drives are cabled or hot swap and then to correctly identify the failed drive. When a drive in a predictive fail state, it blinks green & amber and in a failed state, it blinks only amber. 

This is my first time to replace a drive with a Configuration of a RAID 5

The method of replacing a failed drive is not dependent on the RAID level.

"in the available task there is offline are you gonna offline first before powering off then replace the drive then turn it on again?"

"i don't see any indicator physically what drive is failing unlike nowadays server"

For hot swap drives, you may choose or not to offline the drive before replacing. However, for cable drives, you have to gracefully shutdown the server and then replace the drive.
