Perc 5/i single port keeps being marked as failed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Has anyone seen any issues with a single failing port on a perc 5/i? I am running raid 10 composed of two 500GB seagate disks and two 1TB WD RE4 disks. One of the RE4 disks was marked as failed and it was on port 3. I pulled the RE4 and replaced it with a 2TB WD Green disk as I waited for a replacement RE4. I had no problems for the 7 days or so that I waited for the RE4 replacement and I then pulled and replaced the WD Green with the new RE4. The raid array was rebuilt within a few hours however 9hrs and 50minutes later the new RE4 on port 3 is again marked as failed.

Since I am only using ports 0-3 I'm going to move the disks to ports 4-7 and see if that makes a difference. I just wanted to ping this group to see if anyone more experienced than I has seen this issue.

I am running 6x wd1003fbyx (1TB RE4) on a Dell Perc 6/i just fine and haven't experienced an issue with any of the ports. I know it's not the same card though, just in the same family.
