heres one for the experts

we have a server with three disks that were actively in a raid 5 array, unfortunately the server appears to have died on us. We need to know if with the following information wether the Raid can be rebuilt or at the very least data pulled off of it.

again its an intel(r) storage console version 2.12  controlling the Raid

heres what i can see when i look at the drives. (see attached .txt file).

When i select repair on 0 which is the only drive option other than the missing hotfix i get the message ''Drive in error state cannot be repaired automatically! contact your sysAdmin or the customer support of the Intel corporation.''


Any help i will be very greatful/ any information required i can be reached on {email removed by Callandor}

Regards

Mike

If you have two failed disk from 3 disk RAID5 it is big problem. You can restore data if one disk fail, but now it is almost not possible. Some company offers services for restoring broken raid, but its expensive.
