My raid controller failed
Posted on 2008-06-19
we experienced power outdage yesterday, and unfortunately I was not onsote to turn the server off properly. Anyway when turning the server this is the error I got:
Perc 4e/Di Standard FW
1 logical drive found on the host
0 physical drive found on the host
1 logical drive failed
1 logical drive handled by bios
0 physical drive handled by bios
Configuration of NVRAM and Drives mismatch
then I press A to run the configuration utility
when I view the configuration
I see in RAID ch 1
0- FAIL A00-00
under logical drives configured I see:
LD RAID SIZE #STRIPES STRPSZ DRIVE-STATE
0 5 139760MB 3 64KB OFFLINE
I know I can click on each drive and bring them online I have seen someone doing that before , but would i loose any of the configuration.
what is my best way to put this server online or the windows up an running.
my other option in the menu is Rebuild and Reconstruct . I am really not good with arry so I dont want to try anything and loose everything.
Please I need help!!!!!!
