I hope one of you can help me with an X4270 storage issue.
I am busy installing OS and application on a X4270 with 24 LSI disks and 2 of the disks have the amber "needs maintenance" led activated so I cannot see
these disks in the Solaris 10 "format" command.
Issue happened after we ejected and re-inserted these disks (disks should be hot-swappable), I am pretty sure that the disks are fine but cannot manage to
get them back into operation.
Any help and suggestions are more than welcome, thanks a lot in advance.
x4270 - it's general server, not storage.
Docs' about server:
This server can content different raid card for support disk.
You need identify type insalled raid-controller and use corresponded way for resolve this issue.
It's look like you have: SG-XPCIESAS-R-INT-Z, Adaptec/Intel-based
You can install software for manage this controller or use BIOS based utility for understand status of disks and clear faulted state.
Solved problem as follows:
During system boot went into MegaRaid webbios GUI (which is really crappy - only navigation possible via <tab> )
Went to the controller properties and disabled "Maintain PD fail history".

Booted from the Oracle Hardware Assistant ISO and re-created raid 0 volumes on the disks.
