Re: Hot Spare issue2012-11-12T19:07:41Z in response to SystemAdminHi Salim,
there are few problems on your DS4300:
1. failed battery, you need purchase new one
Battery status: Failed
Location: Controller A
2. HDD 1, 8 status - "Impending failure (reported by controller)" - replace it to new one;
3. HDD 1, 5 status - Optimal, but no any other data about this HDD. Is it your Hot Spare? Looks like it also failed. Try remove it and place back after 1 min.
Update all HDDs ST373454FC firmware to fresh version B96C.
