Perc 6/i warning message, what does the warning mean?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have 4 X 2TB Hitachi drives with Perc 6/i in RAID 10 setup. Monitored by Dell SAS Raid Storage Manager with Windows 7 64bit Ultimate.

Lately I have been getting this warning message, "controller ID:0 PD Predictive Failure: --:--:0" any idea what it means?
According to the logs the warning shows up everyday at 17:05:XX.

Other than this warning message, everything seem fine functionally.

Any ideas?
Thanks

according to the manual a drive failure is imminent because it threw a SMART error -
Quote:
"2111
Description: Failure prediction threshold exceeded due to test - No action needed.
Cause: A disk has received a SMART alert (predictive failure) due to test conditions.

Action: None.

Severity: Warning/Noncritical. See "Alert Severity Levels" for more information.

Clear Alert Number: None.

SNMP Trap Number: 903. See "SNMP Support for Storage Management Alerts" for more information. "

Even though the drive(s) are within an array, you should be able to use a hard drive tool found here

You should also be abe to boot into the PERC bios and do a check on the drive to find out which drive may be failing. I know on my PERC 5/6CH it prompts me during bootup to press 'F10' to load the PERC BIOS. Anything else I can do to help, let me know. Hope this helps!
