I have a server w/ a RAID 5 array, which hosts an Oracle database that I can not take offline. One of the drives failed during a power surge, and now the array is degraded. I pulled the drive out, put it back in, and now I can not figure out how to make the array rebuild itself.
This adaptec software is without a doubt the most useless software I have ever used.
I need to know how to rebuild the array without rebooting the server.
The help file, which doesn't have the words 'degraded' or 'rebuild' in its index anywhere, says that by default the array will automatically rebuild itself. yet the event veiwer in the software says 'Rebuild could not be started for Array 'Adaptec 2200s' No hot spares found.
It shows all of the drives as optimal, including the one that failed.
Please help. 500pts.
