SUMMARY: SRC/P: howto find the failed drive?

I ended up placing a service call with SUN.

There is no way to locate the drive with the src/p raid controller 
software. RM6 has that feature but not the dptmgr.

For some reason that feature is not available with dptmgr.

What i had to do was make a file(mkfile) on the slice that was broken. I 
was then able to find the drive because the activity LEDs were not 
blinking on the failed drive.

Replace the drive and rebuilt the array. Everything works now. Well 
somewhat works. I think i didn't push hard enough on the drive. So it goes 
on/offline. I understand that it's a problem with the bracket(Sun calls 
them spuds) designs on e250/e450's.

Thanks for the replies.
