    Isis 5000 System Drive identification

    Hello all-

    One of the 2.5" system drives in an Isis 5000 chassis has failed, and according to the documentation, the failed drive can be swapped without shutting down the server.

    The problem is, I'm not sure how to positively identify the failed drive on the back of the chassis.

    The two slots are labeled 'HD0' and 'HD1'.

    The 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology' software that manages the RAID identifies the two drives as 'Port 0' and 'Port 1'. Unfortunately, the 'Activate port LED' feature doesn't seem to work, so there's no way to correlate the port number in the software with the physical drive in the chassis.

    I'd prefer not to shut down the server and pull both drives. Can anyone confirm the location of 'Port 0' and 'Port 1' in the server chassis?

    HD0 = Port 0

    HD1 = Port 1


    Unfortunately, you will likely need to reboot the server. Maybe even twice in a row in order for the drive detection and rebuild to commence.

    I think I have hot swapped the system drive once out of a dozen times. All other times it required a reboot.
