Always look at the Controller settings,** 

Check if the battery is full on the array controller,

Reboot and check controller settings if you do not see the disks

shut down server and remove and reconnect cables and connectors, becareful when closing device that one connector is not tightly seated. or pulled apart when closing the cover.

** remember to check the controller settings, if one disk is designed to be a hot spare.

  Subject: DL380 G4 Disk status lights

  After a disk swap into a new system box the raid system reported 
  da1: rebuilding / da0: ok 

  I now have the following condition status lights on my disks: 

  Drive bays 0, 1 and 3 are blinking red. 
  Drive bay 2 has no lights. 
  All of the drive bays (0, 1, 3, 4, and 5) also have a solid green light. 

  Does this indicate that disk2 needs to be replaced? 

  How to proceed?
