How to correct a continual resynching status

I have a Windows 2000 server that is configured with software raid.  I know that is not the best configuration, but it is the way the server is currently configured.
There are a total of 4 drives.  Each mirror set consists of 2 drives.
After a recent reboot, the drives continually report a status of resynching.
Please see the attached PDF.
I have tried restarting the server a couple of times and the resynching message never goes away.
Adaptec sees the drives on bootup and they even pass the Adaptec diagnostic test.
I am not sure if I have two drives that are failing and how to determine which drives are actually failing.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

That's one of the problems with Software RAID, hard to diagnose an issue.

You may have to see if the event logs for more info, as well as Disk manager

I would also run vendor diagnostics when you have a chance.


I hope this helps !

The event logs don't have any information related to the disk drives or scsi controllers.  They are Seagate drives.  By 'vendor diagnostics', I assume you mean a Seagate utility.  I will reasearch that option.

Thanks for the info on the Ultimate Boot CD.
I built the image and will test it on the server as soon as possible.

I ran the SeaTools Enterprise Edition on all 4 drives and the all passed diagnostics.
The system is still reporting a 'resynching' status on the drives.
Any other thoughts on what to try next?

Thanks for your help.  The problem still exists.  I am trying to convince the firm to purchase a new server.  This one is 6 years old.  I did not know about the ultimatebootcd and I know it will be a valuable tool.
