H2216XXKR 4 node Server with S2600JF Disk Activity LED flashing Green and Status LED Amber

Hi,

We have a 4 node Server (Chassis H2216XXKR) with 4 Compute Modules / Mainboard S2600JF. ESXi installed on the Servers. Every Server has 4 Drives (SSDs) as Raid 0. The OS (ESXi) is installed on a Satadom (innodisk).

The Servers was running since over a year without any problem.

Today one of the Servers lost one Datastore (SSD Disk (Intel 480) RAID 0) and was'nt accessible by the ESXi till i reboot the server.

After the restart the Server running normaly (all Disk accessible) - except the LED on the Drive Carrier flashing unusual.

Activity LED flashing but also the Status LED flashing amber very often. (2.5" HDD Carrier)

Why this happens ? As described above we use RAID 0 on all Drives - so no rebuild process is ongoing.

Additional Info: In the BMC Server Health Event Log we have new enties:

Any ideas ?

Thanks in advance

Like you said, there shouldn't be much rebuild process in a RAID 0. We need to check if there is any background task being performed at this time.

Which RAID controller are you using?

we use the onboard Controller: Patsburg 4-port SATA Controller (Intel RSTe)

(Sorry, we have not defined any RAID or something..this was a false statement )
