Chapter 12. Managing Server Storage Devices > Viewing Volume Health Status

Viewing Volume Health Status

The health status of each volume is provided in the volume properties pane under the volume size in Disk Management (refer back to Figure 12.5). The following are some of the more common items displayed in this area:

  • Online— The disk is operating normally with no known problems.

  • Healthy— The volume is operating normally.

  • Healthy (At Risk)— The volume is operating but is experiencing I/O errors.

  • Online (Errors)— Used only for dynamic disks, this status indicates that I/O errors have been detected.

  • Offline or Missing— Used only for dynamic disks, this status indicates that the disk is not accessible.

  • Failed Redundancy— One of the fault-tolerant volumes has failed.

  • Foreign— Used only for dynamic disks, this status indicates that a dynamic disk was removed from a Windows 2000/2003/XP computer and placed into this Windows 2003 computer, but has not yet been imported.

  • Unreadable— The disk is not accessible.

  • Unrecognized— The disk is not recognized (for example, a disk that was used in a Linux or a Unix system).

  • No Media— Used only for removable-media drives such as CD-ROM and Zip drives. The status changes to Online when readable media is inserted into the drive.
