Primary Drive Failed in SCSI Raid Mirror
Posted on 2006-11-28
I have a Dell PowerEdge 1300 with and Adaptec SCSI Controller and two 9.1GB Drives Mirrored (hardware). The primary Drive(0) failed but Drive(1) appears to be ok. I disconnected the failed Drive(0) and booted from the NT Server CD and I am in recovery mode. Can I run FIXMBR and make that new one bootable so I can run off of one drive and recover my data?
I went into the SCSI Controller Utility and made SCSI ID 1 the bootable drive but I am not confident that I "Broke" the mirror as I believe I need to.
Please help and let me know if this needs to get settled at the Controller or by setting the MBR on the other drive.
Thank you..... I'm giving it 500 points becuase I have customer data that I need to recover.
I do have a backup on tape of the data but I am not sure if the customer has verified it.
