Re: Powerdege 2900 - hard disk blinking amber


I would suggest that your hard drives are configured in a raid 5 array which would allow for you to use the Hot plug features of this server. This would allow you to remove the faulty drive and replace it with a drive of the exact same manufacturer and size. After replacing the drive the RAID controller will rebuild the array for you automatically. As mentioed above you do not need to power off the server whilst doing this.
