This could be caused by either a bad SCSI controller or a bad SCSI Drive.  My first thought would be to install the latest manufacturer drivers for your SCSI controller.  Secondly check out this Microsoft link:

Loftyworm,

This has just begun, The system shows the Array as Healthy, but when running the system PerfMon show maxed on the Avg .

CPU and RAM look Good. MEMTEST ran it all looks good. I have looked on Adaptec for Diagnostic tools and have not found any for this particular controller, I have also looked on Supermicro's site and have not found anything either.

Patmac951: Thanks I have already gone through that..

This system is not running Scsi drive.. Its running SATA. Problem resolved though. I had a bad drive in the array. I have replaced the drive, and all is running good. For some reason the Adaptec Drive Management tool doesn function correctly with SATA drives..but the Bios level Configuration Tool does.
