Analizing netwaork media Type

RPC-ROM-FFC: 1sec.....

Your server doesn't know where to boot from anymore and it is stuck on the LAN...
What is the status light of your Hard Drives....
You definitely need to go to the RAID setup and check the consistency of the drives or it depends on your app, you can do a repair...
Hope that helps.
