Drive Failures

When a drive fails in a Hedvig Storage Cluster Node, an alert is generated. In addition, the locator light for the failed drive is turned on.


  • The following procedure is the same for new or existing drives.

  • For more information about replacing a failed drive, see the Hedvig KB (knowledge base) articles.


  1. Replace a failed drive with a drive of the same capacity.

  2. Run the following script on the Hedvig Storage Cluster Node:

    cd /usr/local/hedvig/scripts/spm
    ./ {hblock|pages}
