you may have a failed disk in your pe2500.

you may want to lodge a service call with dell to replace the disk if you
can identify it.

the simplest way to do this may be to shut the system down and then reboot
and use the raid BIOS to investigate which drive has failed.  this is usually
simpler than using the online raid management tools.
