found one or more critical logical drives: controller 1. Repair as soon as
possible to avoid data loss.
  1. What does this mean?
  2. Is it Critical or can be ignored?
  3. If critical how to solve it?

  1. One of SERVERNAME's disks is failing (or perhaps a software or hardware issue)
  2. Yes, unless you don't care this server's data
  3. Use the ServeRAID manager documentation to find out what is causing the issue and fix it.
