OK I hate RAID and I've been meaning to learn more about it but haven't had time; I guess I should have made time as one of the servers has failed with a RAID problem.
We have a Dell Poweredge 2500SC with PERC 3DI Raid
Two 8GB Seagate drives in an array (This contains the OS)
One 20 gb Drive with Data on it.
It looks like one of the 8gb OS drives has failed. I won't be able to get a replacement for weeks (long story)
Can I run this server on the one OS drive?
they were set up as a mirror
If I access PERC (CTRL A) at start-up the only option available seems to be:
Containers: Initialize drive.
Otherwise the raid doesn't seem to want to use the disk
If I initialize the disk in the PERC management will it wipe the disk? (I need the data and the OS settings)
