EVA4400 Command View detects array is inoperative

I am having some problems with HP EVA4400. after a full shut down of the server due to over heating issues. Ive rebooted the whole system and all blade servers seems to be functioning without a problem. when I log though command view I am getting error:

"Command view EVA has detected this array is inoperative. Contact HP Support" and "All disk groups in the storage system are RAID1 inoperable".

All disks in the shelf show green and if I reseat a single disk all other disks shelves recognizing the change. I have allot of virtual machines and important data stored on the system in different vdisks.

I need to note when I restarted the server first time I noticed that one of the the disk enclosures where not lit (all of the disks in that enclosure) so I removed one disk at a time on that single enclosure and put them back in and it seems to recognize it. when I rebooted the second time all disks lit up green.

Can anybody point me in the right direction? The controllers shows good status in the command view web interface so I assume the problem is else where..

Any suggestions and advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
