Not sure anyone can help on this one. What I am about to post goes against anything that I was trained to do.
I got a call from a new (in a panic) client about their dead HP Proliant ML350 server. I go to the site and this server was configured with a RAID 5 built around 4 18.2 GB SCSI hard drives.
The bad news is that 2 of the hard drives appear to be dead. The worse news is that the client pulled the drives out and forgot the order they were originally setup in (!).
Any suggestions on where I might be able to begin in reparing the array? Or at least some suggest on how to pull the data from the drives?
And the icing on the cake.... no one at this site has been running the backup tape!
