I have a server that is out of warranty and Dell will not help. I have three Disks and one is bad. I have a replacement but want to make sure I proceed without doing irreparable damage. I need some help in walking me through the process of doing a swap. I've never had to do this before and our business partner that managed this server is no longer with us. We forgot to extend the warranty as a result and Dell is not helping us.
ARRAY DISK: 0:2 is offline.
EVENT ID: 510
1. We have three disks and I'm not sure what RAID LEVEL we are at. How can I verify?
2. Is it safe to re-boot the server? I'm not sure if there is a specific disk that will not allow you to re-boot the server if it goes bad. I was considering imaging the server before I attempt to replace the hard drive but the software will require a re-boot.
