dell perc3 raid 1 primary disk failure now what?
Posted on 2006-05-17
I have a dell workstation 530
perc3 set at raid 1
the primary disk failed so now the machine will not boot.
went into the perc utilitiy and saw that the primary has failed.
I don't have another drive to replace the dead one.
can I run off the mirrored drive until the new one arrives?
the mirror drive just has an offline option.
I can't take the dead one offline it just gives me online or rebuild.
I could in the utility remove the drive from the adapter and I assume
that it would take over? I don't see much on dells site on what to do
I have read on the boards here that once its replace it will automatically
rebuild which is checked but it going to be a couple of days till the replacment
