Check Point Firewall: Beeping Sound From The Management Station

I have a customer with a "beeping" Check Point management station.  Its a little hard to hear in the data center with all the noise, but you can hear it if you listen closely.  I ended up running the hardware diagnostics tool off of a USB drive, and it came back clean.  So I ran the command "raidconfig status" and found that I had a hard drive go bad.  You will see it says "degraded" and "failed" on drive 2.  Time for a replacement.

    1. Sorry for the late response Mehul. To find this, I ran that "raidconfig status" command in CLI. Once I ran this, I was able to see that the HD was degraded.
