Led Disk not working correctly?


Recommended Posts

I'm using my Gen 8 with 4 disks, on VMWare ESXi 6.5 with the latest updates.


When I create drives together or separately in RAID 0, the disk usage indicator led works perfectly.


But, when I create RAID 1 drives, the disk utilization indicator light is on.





Has anyone noticed this? Have a solution?

Sorry, I don't have a Gen 8. But when you say "the disk usage indicator led works perfectly", do you mean to say that it blinks when there's activity?


HP's documentation is a little vague on that one too:


Drive status LED:

  • Solid green = System on
  • Flashing green = Drive activity
  • Off = System in standby or no power present


So that can be "normal" under the first bullet. But it doesn't satisfy the 2nd bullet, as per your observation.

It should only flash when in use.


But with RAID1, it doesn't flash, it gets direct access ...


This is bad, because I can't know when the discs are being used ...
