Had a few backup errors over the weekend that were related to disk issues. Troubleshooting this lead to finding the disk appearing with the yellow exclamation mark which is a warning. The disk showd up in "failing" state.

Checked HP system logs

checked the MSA itself

checked OS logs

everything checked out green and not hardware issues.


Went into VEA, Right click on the failing disk > “reactivate disk”

Note: I did this to clear out the flag since there really were no hardware issues. The warning may have been because of a glitch in disk communication.
