Netware and RAID
Posted on 2006-03-23
We have a Netware 5.1 sp5 server, and one of the hard drives in our raid 5 array went bad. The error on the screen stated it was a "NICI CCS: Fatal initilization error". So I replaced the drive, and then rebooted my server. The drive had not finished synchronzation yet, but curious, if this is RAID 5, shouldn't that allow the server to come back up?
I can get into NWCONFIG, and essentially now, I am finding that the reason for the NICI error is that the sys drive is refusing to mount.
My question is how can I get the drive to mount? I am going to leave the server on over night to let the drive rebuild, then try a reboot tomorrow morning.
