RAID 5 - Logical device failed
Posted on 2009-06-30
Adaptec 2420SA controller, Windows storage server 2003, HP Proliant DL100G2.
We have 4 disks, 3 logical devices using RAID 5. One disk failed, therefore we replaced with a new disk.
Problem, once replaced the disk the logical device 3 failed and logical device 2 and 1 are now degraded. Looking via Storage Manager the new drive is only part of logical device 1 and 2 and not 3 as it should be. All disks status are optimal. We can boot the system up for the OS is on logical device 1 however all data is on logical device 3
I know you can use RAID Reconstructor but I cannot see the disks under windows disk management so the RAID reconstructor will not work.
Is there a way to rebuild the logical devices without Data loss ? Can I take the disks out and plug into another RAID controller ?
