From SLC, Drive tray status is good, but "Refresh data for specified device failed" occurred when try to bring online or take offline.

 

Changes

Drive replacement can not resolve this problem.

Customer found the broken belisarius card, so replaced the bel card and cables, but can not fix this issue.

swapped HBD and power supply with another good drive tray, but problem was still with this drive.
