How to identify the crashed disk (DSM->RDM->HP Gen8 Raid0->physical drive)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I am caught with a degraded disk array in DSM.

 

1 of 4 3TB WD Red had bad sector errors and DSM degraded the disk array. In DSM Drive Nr. 5 is shown as dead.

I got a replacement disk but now I am unable to identify the physical disk, which is dead.

 

Because of the buildin Raid Controller B120i I declared every single disk as seperate Raid0. Within the ESX, I published the drives as RDM Mapping into the DSM.

 

Now I need to follow the chain DSM -> RDM Link -> Raid0 -> Driveslot to get the proper disk replaced, but have no clue how to do? 

 

Cheers

Mat

If nothing else, then you should be able to see the serial number of the drive in question in DSM Storage Manager - that serial number should also be listed on the actual drive itself :)
