Drive failure


The drive status LED on the front of the HPE Synergy D3940 Storage Module is steadily illuminated amber, indicating that a drive failure has occurred.

  1. Check the individual drive LEDs to determine which drive has failed. The failed drive will have a solid amber status LED on the failed drive.
    CAUTION: A drive that has previously failed might seem to be operational after the system is power-cycled or (for a hot-pluggable drive) after the drive has been removed and reinstalled. However, continued use of such marginal drives may eventually result in data loss. Replace the marginal drive as soon as possible.
  2. Replace the failed hot-plug drive.
    If the logical drive is degraded, Smart Array begins rebuilding the data. If a drive fails, do not remove drives with the Do Not Remove LED illuminated.
