Are those the same controller? Try pulling the controller out and reseating it. There could also be something wrong with the array. Give us a little more background. Is this a new install?

Thanks for a fast reply Myrqroup.

I will check the controller in another 30 minutes and will pull the controller and reseating it.
Actually this server have been used for a 4-node before, just 3 weeks ago, we decided to reconfigured as 8-node, that means we connected 8 server together ( of cuz all 8 IBM x3950) and this server had used without any problem in the last 3 weeks. Its just start shows the error today.

I will update the controller later.

Thanks

This error have been resolved.

I have reseated the raid controller , there is only one raid controller in this machine, I don't know why the error came up with 4 controllers.

Finally this machine is up and running now. thank you very much.
