Rack mounted case with drive failure led

Recommended Posts

As per title really,


We all know about rack mounted server's that have the obligatory blinky led's to indicated activity, does anybody know of a case that indicates drive failure by maybe a red led??

I'm not aware of anything that matches your description, but overall, the lack of blinking leds is an indicator something's amiss in the system. More-over, the frequency/pattern leds blink is also an indicator of what exactly is amiss to the troubleshooting sys-admin. Server mainboards usually have a hardware monitoring system (heartbeat) that keeps track of activity and if none is detected within a certain time-frame, it performs action according to BIOS settings: reboot, email the owner, etc.
