2 HDD Failed. How to indentify the cause?
Posted on 2007-11-20
A nightmare happened saturday night here as 2 of 3 hdd (raid 5) failed. Impossible to rebuilt and data recovery failed. Fortunatelly we had backups so we're up again, on a single hdd (still scary)...Before doing anything (buying hdd and or raid controller and or brand new server (getting old)) we would like to know why it happened. Can you help me with all the possibilities. Thank you (sorry for my bad english)
3 MAXTOR 18GB ATLAS 15K ULTRA320 SCSI 68PIN 3.5" LP
1 Adaptec SCSI RAID 2100S
1 disk was "optimal" the other 2 were "failed"
Array = Dead - multiple drives failure.
