Smart array 5i just keeps initializing
Posted on 2006-04-21
Here is the scenario.
I have a Compaq Proliant DL380 G2 server
It has a smart array 5i embedded
Everytime I boot up the server it just keeps initializing the smart array 5i on and on and on. Then it finally says "non-system disk or disk error".
I have only three drives in the server and the first drive the "arrow light" stays on, once I turn on the server. This lets me know that the array will not initialize.
What is making this do this? Is my controller gone bad? PLEASE HELP, this is a production clustered server.
