Audible Alarm? Didn't know there was such a thing. I'm thinking it's more likely a drive crying for attention. Just leave it alone and it will go away soon. ;-)
My mistake: I put a finger on the faulty drive frame while it was beeping; the beep WAS coming from the drive (or SOMETHING on the drive frame).
Why a failed hard drive would make a sound like an oboe being slowly strangled, though . . .
And if the sound wasn't engineered specifically to be annoying, IBM couldn't have done a better job of it if they had.
At any rate, I still needed to drop down to DST in order to pull the pair out of the configuration: no way am I going to waste a spare on a mostly-empty ASP!
