Windows Server 2008 - "Integrated RAID Exception Detected"
Posted on 2011-03-14
Something happened today that caused my server (Dell PowerEdge T300) to begin running extremely slow. Even logging in to the desktop on the server took over 5 minutes. I did a reboot to see if that would fix it, and I saw this error message pop up.
" Integrated RAID Exception Detected. Run SAS Configuration Utility. Currently in the state of RESYNCING." (But it doesn't tell me which drive)
I have a C: where the OS is located and D: (data Drive) and the f: (pre-installed recovery drive from dell).
I've run the Dell System/Hardware Diagnostics and am not getting any bad results. And I'm in the SAS Configuration Utility, but I can't seem to find any option to resync or repair.
Is this a hardware failure? Should I replace the drive, even though the dell diagnostics are telling me that the drive is fine? Is it a cable? But if it was a cable, wouldn't the diagnostic tests fail? Or should I try a repair of the O/S and see if that fixes it?
