WHS and Failing Disks
Customer calls complaining about a clicking noise on his HP Data Vault X510 WHS server. I'm guessing it's either a bad disk or the fan. I bring the server back to the shop ... and sure enough, it's one of the disks that's making the noise. But, how do I determine which disk???
A quick search of the Internet and the WHS Home Servert SMART add-in comes to the rescue! I installed the latest version (126.96.36.199) and voila! it quickly identified the disk in question. This will be an add-in I will be installing on all my WHS servers!
