ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/software1/pubsw-linux/p414707558/v47111/hpacucli-8.10-2.noarch.txt

After running hpacucli command, its saying :

Hi,

I guess you havea hardware RAID this is why you can't reach it through hpacucli.

All you need to do is reboot your system and run ServeRAID application from the CD. Then Rebuild your RAID volume.

Only after fixing it you'll be able to access it via hpacucli.

Will you please post the cotents of /proc/mdstat ?

Cheers,
K.
