When I try to boot the system, I get error message 1787 - Slot 3 Drive Array Operating in Interim Recovery Mode. The following SCSI drive should be replaced: SCSI Port 2: SCSI ID0.
Then it says:
Scanning for SCSI drives.... No SCSI drives detected.
Press F1 to continue. F10 for system partition utilities.
When I press F1, it takes me to the SmartStart 5.5 CD, which I have in the CD drive.
If I choose Array Diagnostics, it says: Logical Drive 1 status = interim recovery (volumn) functional, but not fault tolerant). SCSI port 2, ID0 failed - REPLACE
If i go into the Array Configuration Utility, I get the message: The Compaq Smart Array 3200 Controller in Slot 3 has a bad or missing drive attaced.
There are 3 drives in the server, with 6 possible slots. I have tried moving the drives to different slots with the same result.
Is it a bad controller card, a bad drive or RAID improperly configured?
