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?

It's a Windows 2000 server.

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

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

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.
