Unexpected Restarts Server 2003 SBS - RAID Problems and Backplane Issues?
Posted on 2010-11-29
I have a server thatis getting a lot of unexpected restarts. When I review the system logs cannot find anything to indicate a problem prior to the restart.
I've had several problems that indicate input/output errors and as I eliminate them the system does seem to function better in every aspect. I cannot get past the unexpected restarts issue.
I have an Intel SRCSASRB. When I open the Intel RAID manager,the dashboard shows status as optimal, one enclosure, zero backplanes, six drives, one drive group, and one virtual drive.
I have exhausted everything that know how to do in diagnosing these unexpected restarts. I believe they are in some way related to the RAID array or card.
I have to have a backplane, right? If this is true, then could the system not seeing a backplane explain the I/O errors? I don't see any items in device manager letter showing incorrect drivers, and correct functioning, or as unrecognized hardware.
