Here a big problem....As u can understand from title i have a server with open enterprise server 2 (sles 10), two disk in hardware raid 1, two partition on logic unit, first partition with OS and second one (NSS, netware partition) with 100 gb of data (with netware user rights on).
After a problem on one disk, hp let me upgrade firmware of server , especially smart array and older disk.
Server began a rebuilding operation.
after both disk starts to blink amber, and hp bios reported 2 errors about disks (1-Something about bad sector/error should be resolved when sectors will be rewritten 2-about two disk predicted to fail soon).
I have two new disks, ready to replace both.
I know backup of data is a problem of mine, but my questions are:
a) If two disks are experienced trouble, but system goes up and works correctly, data on that logic unit (split by mirroring on two disks) should be considered SAFE and CONSISTENT?
b)if now i try to replace first disk, then wait for rebuilding (monitoring from ACU), then replace second disk and wait for a second rebuilding, should be the RIGHT PROCEDURE?
I cannot reinstall OS, i hope smart array has the exact copy of data on both disk (even though "predicted to fail soon").
Please help and ask me for details!! I'm waiting....
