Raid keeps failing on sbs2003
Posted on 2006-06-05
I need urgent help with this one. My client has a "server" using a Gigabyte GA-8I945PL-G motherboard. It has been set up with Raid 5 within SBS2003. However, although this works fine for a short while it's not long before the raid fails recently 2 out of the 3 drives failed. I know this board states that it has onboard IDE raid, if this is not disabled in the BIOS will this cause a conflict with the software raid?
I've had a similar issue with a client using mirroring on the same board where one of the two drives goes off-line and the server has to be rebooted to get it back but after resynching the mirror it fails again after a short while (hours/days, not quite sure)
500 points if I get an answer quickly.
