I have a 7835HP with a mirrored array. I noticed a blinking red light(trash can with X) on the drive. I checked the hp array tool and there are no errors with the array or the drive. I then hot swapped a new drive in the array to replace the suspect bad drive, the array mirrored the drived but then the same light is now flashing on the new drive. anyone seen this before, is this an indication of a controller going bad? did a search on cisco and cant seen to find documentation for the hard drive lights.

Did you check for any over heating issues? How long has this been in operation, if you can afford to power down let it cool off, clean any dust, tighten all connections and re start.

This is usually power, controller or environment issue.

Good luck,
