IBM x226 - ServeRAID can't set drive to rebuild state
Posted on 2009-04-15
I have an IBM x226 running Windows Server 2003. A drive became defunct so I replaced the drive with a new one. It still shows up as defunct and it doesn't seem to be rebuilding. When I right click on the drive in ServeRAID Manager and select "Rebuild drive", it says "Could not set the drive to rebuild state: controller 1, channel 2, SCSI ID 1. Result codes: [RC:-5 GSB:0xc ESB:0x76]"
Of course, the program says that once a new drive is inserted, it will automatically start the rebuild. That does not happen. When I do a "scan for new or removed ready drives" with the new drive inserted or removed, it detects 0 new ready drives and 0 removed ready drives.
Why will the drive not rebuild? Am I missing something obvious here? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!
