Solid state disk (SSD) – end of life

An SSD drive is reporting that it has reached the end of its usable life which could cause the drive to fail. If the drive fails, any associated volumes, disk pools and volume groups will become degraded and may lose data.

  • No data has been lost but you should replace the drive as soon as possible.

  • Make sure the replacement drive has a capacity equal to or greater than the drive you will remove.

  • You can replace the drive while the storage array is receiving I/O.

Recovery Steps

  1. Remove the drive shown in the Details area. Its fault indicator light should be lit.

  2. Wait at least 30 seconds after removing a drive before inserting a new one.

  3. Insert a new drive. Its fault indicator light may be lit for a short time (one minute or less).

  4. Select Recheck to ensure the problem has been resolved.
