How are the physical disks and disk arrays represented on my ReadyDATA storage system?

The physical disks that are installed in the ReadyDATA and optional expansion disk arrays are represented in a graphical enclosure onscreen:

The disks in the graphical enclosure are color coded. The meaning of the colors is explained in the following table:

Sample

Color

Description

Image

Black

Not assigned to a volume. Available for selection.

Image

Gray

Image

Gray, no label

The disk is not signed by NETGEAR. Not available for use with ReadyDATA.

Image

Blue

Member of the displayed volume.

Image

Yellow

Write boost disk for the displayed volume.

Image

Orange

Image

Green

Assigned as a global spare disk.

 

The status LED icon on a disk (which is located at the right side) can be off, green, or red:

  • Off. Indicates that the status of the disk is unknown (for example, see the black and gray disks in the previous table).
  • Green. Indicates that the disk is online (for example, see the blue, yellow, orange, and green disks in the previous table).
  • Red Image. Indicates that the disk is bad or faulty.
