Raid 1 Rebuild Failed - Adaptec 1210SA

rpmaps asked
Last Modified: 2016-12-08
I have an Adaptec 1210sa card in a machine running Windows Server 2003 configured in Raid 1 with two identical Seagate Barracuda 160 GB HD's.  The Adaptec Storage Manager showed the status of the raid as degraded:  <Failed drive: controller 1, port 1>   I replaced the failed drive in port 1 with a brand new Barracuda 160 GB HD.  Through the Adaptec Storage Manager I selected <create hot spare> and <rebuild drive>.  The rebuilding process starts and runs for approx 30 minutes.  At approx 19% complete the rebuilding stops.  The first error message is <Failed drive: controller 1, port 1> followed immediately by <Rebuild failed: controller 1, logical device 1 ("tst") [18]>

Could there be a problem with the Adaptec 1210SA?

Could there be a problem with the "good" drive in port 0 and the same errors are being mirrored to the new drive in port 1?

Under <Logical Devices> it lists the Raid 1 as degraded.  It does give me options to a) initialize, b)verify or c) verify with fix.  Will any of these choices help me without risk of losing data from the good drive in port 0?
