Raid Configuration Critical and Crashed
Posted on 2006-06-27
We have a Computer with an Asus P4C800-e motherboard in it because of the raid feature on this board and the size of the company we decided to put windows 2003SBS until we grew and had a bigger IT budget. The other morning the machine would not boot into windows and the raid controller built onboard stated that out raid 1 mirror was at critical status. Another IT person came in and pulled the drives and checkd the data on these drives which seemed to be fine. When i returned from being out of town i placed these drives back into the server and it will start to boot but end up crashing and displaying a blue screen( very short cant make out errors). I then tried to reinstall windows SBS over the top by using the repair feature when it comes to the point of installing the OS it displays on the screen that the drive is dynamic and has to be formatted. I have tried every thing the main reason I do not want to start over is we had data inside of a share point database on \\Companyweb which we cant seen to extract I also Have this questionn posted under Operating systems. Is this normal for the disk in the raid to both diplay dynamic? What should I do to solve this there must be a way to recover the SBS settings and system state when I can see all the data on these drives.
Thanks this is very important I am onsite now and am trying to resolve this issue
