I was closing the case of our server when it was running and all of a suden it restarted. After that it said the there is diffrent time stamp on the hard dirve or somthing and it now showes the raid 1 arry as Offline. Wehen I do Crt+E to go in the raid utility. It just showes the arry as offline and it has Fail stats on both hard drives. I need this thing up and running asap since this is the OS dirve. Please responsd ASAP. Thak you,

Did you check the connections on the drives and make sure none of the cables came loose?

here is a link to the user guide: ftp://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/srcsas18e/sb/d29305_005_raid_swg.pdf

There are sections in there to read about taking drives on/off line and rebuilding drives.

To force a drive online or offline, follow these steps:
1.On the Main Menu, select Objects and then Physical Drive.
2.Highlight a physical drive that is a member of an array and press the <Enter> key.
3.From the menu, choose one of the following:
Force Offline to take the drive off line. If the drive was online, its status changes to FAIL.
Force Online to bring the drive on line. If the drive was offline, its status changes to ONLIN.

Wmeerza,
I looked at the pdf last night and brought the drive online. I did what dshroutait  has, but I did it last night. You saved my life with that PDF last night. Thank you,
