Client has ServerRaid Manager software for IBM xSeries 345  couple issues

1) ServerRaid Manager failed to start at port number 34,571 - I've changed the port number numerous times and restarted the service.  Same Error.

2) previous IT tech incorrectly configured the system.  There are 2 Array's (A) and (B).  Array A had 1 Drive - Array B has 3 drives.  There are 2 extra drives id1-Ready - id5-Hot Spare.  From what I can tell there is no redundancy for Array A - so if that drive files it is not mirrored.  Is there a way to add id1-Ready to Array A for redundancy?

I would suggest to boot serveraid configurator from CD
w2000 is out of support, so do not expect it to become better instrumented ever....

Yes I know. My client doesn't see the need to upgrade. I've suggested going to 2003.  But no joy.

burn support cd to cd-rw at lowest speed available and configure as you need.
that is the burden of legacy system.

vmware esxi hypervisor may solve their problem with diminishing HW support

Clarification - Part 1 is Windows 2000 Server - Part 2 is another Server with Windows 2003.  Customer received incorrect recommendations from former IT tech.

Part 1) - boot from CD, ESXi recommendation applies here.
Part 2) - depending on controller you can have hot spare for physical array or logical volume or none. Just try.
