Take a close look at the storage server. On the right side, you will find a small sticker labeled "HDD map" which shows you how the disks are numbered.
Alternatively, as an Exadata customer, you also should have MOS access. On the "EOL" systems list, locate the X3-2L server and click on the "Front View" icon to enlarge it.
You will notice that the disks are numbered left-to-right, bottom-to-top. I.e: Disk 0 is located at the bottom left, next to it you will find Disk 1, then Disk 2 and Disk 3. Disk 4 is on the left slot in the middle row, and so on.
After you pulled the first disk, verify that the serial number matches the one in your output.
I think you can find with 'detail' option.
CellCLI> list physicaldisk 'X' detail
'X' is phical disk name
You can also find with
cellcli>list alert history
cellcli>list alerthistory 'X' detail
where 'X' object name.
CellCLI> list physicaldisk where disktype=flashdisk and status=failed detail
3. If you have OEM alerts setup, details will be in alert message
thank you very much, I got it, but I have 7 storage servers and 4 database servers, and in one storage server I still have an amber led lit in disk 5, but all other disks are green. Strangely when I run :
LIST PHYSICALDISK WHERE diskType=HardDisk AND status LIKE ".*failure.*" DETAIL
shows nothing, but if I run:
CellCLI> LIST PHYSICALDISK
20:0 K2XS3N normal
20:1 KGGNUL failed
20:2 K2Z40N warning - poor performance
20:3 KGGH2L warning - poor performance
20:4 K04M8N failed
20:5 KVT1MN normal
20:6 K24KEN warning - poor performance
20:7 KGGH5L warning - poor performance
20:8 KKNJPL normal
20:9 KGG46L normal
20:10 KG7RXL normal
20:11 K2ZUPN normal
FLASH_1_0 5L00677V normal
FLASH_1_1 5L0066GQ normal
FLASH_1_2 5L0066D5 normal
FLASH_1_3 5L0066CW normal
FLASH_2_0 FL00219Q failed
FLASH_2_1 FL00219W warning - peer failure
FLASH_2_2 FL0021AX warning - peer failure
FLASH_2_3 FL0021B7 warning - peer failure
FLASH_4_0 FL004Z4E normal
FLASH_4_1 FL004ZEJ normal
FLASH_4_2 FL004Z0T normal
FLASH_4_3 FL004XWR normal
FLASH_5_0 FL004XPK normal
FLASH_5_1 FL004YXH normal
FLASH_5_2 FL004XZR normal
so disks 1 and 4 are faulty, but they are green led on them. So am I missing something here? How to identify this server?

Since you have logged in to that particular system, you already know it's name, right?
Now, if you do not know the system's location in your Exadata rack, you can turn on the "Locator LED" on the system:
- Log in to the system's ilom. Typically, it's the same hostname, appended with "-ilom". So, if your storage server's name is "exacel01", then the ILOM will be "exacel01-ilom".
- Turn on the locator LED with "set /System/locator_indicator=on"
PS: The servers in an Exadata usually are named bottom to top. Make sure you are looking at the right system. An amber LED indicates a "real" physical problem and this should also be reflected in the output of "LIST PHYSICALDISK". OTOH, especially with older Exadata software releases, disks got tagged as "failed" even when they just had a small hiccup. This has been fixed in later releases (see https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E80920_01/DBMSO/exadata-whatsnew.htm#DBMSO22125 ).
