Physical Disk - Loss of Path Redundancy

Jump to solution

I have a MD3000.

I bought a 1T SATA drive from Dell.

The MD3000 didn't recognize the new drive.

Dell had me update the MD3000 from gen I to gen II. and flash the drive.

Now the drive is recognized but I get the following error.

"Physical Disk - Loss of Path Redundancy"

I have two drives and they both have the error.

Any idles? To my knowledge the new drives have never had a redundant path.

if the error doesnt correct itself after some time, you will need to power cycle the system that the MD3000 is connected to, and that should resolve the message. Just to confirm, your sata drive has an interposer board to connect to the MD3000?

Usually means the Drive FW needs updating.   But, the MD3000i FW changed a while back.

Generally you would want to clear stats on it via command line.    These errors are cumlative now.   It really doesn't indicate definite issues anymore.   Gte enough of them over time and your MD3000i errors with this error.

The new drives do not have interposer built into them like I thought. We bought the drive for the MD3000 you would think the sales person would go for the add-on sale. I will remove the drives for now. Think you.

Oh,  they actually were totally not available?      Definetly need the interposer for SATA on these.
