Failed Drive NL54 - upgrading storage?


Recommended Posts



One of my drives has failed in my Micro Server - running windows 2012 storage server.


2 TB SATA HDD at Port 2I : Bay 3 is bad or missing. To correct this problem, check the data and power connections to the physical drive. For more information, generate a diagnostics report


I have 2tb x4 disks installed.


I have just bought 4tb x 4 disks, and wanting to remove the 2tb and install these..?




Hoping to remove the faulty drive and install 1 4tb disk, once rebuilt replace the other 2tb disks one at a time with the 4th disk.   (Will this work)? 


I have 4 bays on the micro server - bay 3 has failed. will this be the 3rd drive from the left? as there is no light indicator and i dont want to pull the wrong drive out?


I have a P222 raid controller connected to the drive cage using a cable i purchased (forget what its called)


thanks for any advise..
