I noticed a couple days my backups did not run correctly and people complained of a huge exchange slowdown. When I checked I noticed a bad HD. I have since replaced the bad disk with a factory replacement and my backups still do not run. Same exact issue. The disk that failed is part of a RAID 5. I ran the Diag Utiliy and get the following error Dirty data detected. Unable to write dirty data to drives.
In Event viewer I see the following errors.
Logical drive 3 configured on array controller E200 located in server slot 3 returned a fatal error during a read/write request from/to the volume.
Logical block address 9461208, block count 128 and command 20 were taken from the failed I/O request.
Drive bus 1 and drive bay 6 were returned from the host firmware as the last physical drive (associated with this logical request), to report a fatal condition.
When I open the ACU I see the below. Next to the RAID 5 there is a little clock. I am not sure exactly what the means.
Smart Array E200 in Slot 3
SAS Array A
72 GB SAS Drive at Port 1I : Box 1 : Bay 1
72 GB SAS Drive at Port 1I : Box 1 : Bay 2
Logical Drive 1 ( 69973 MB, RAID 1+0 )
SAS Array B
72 GB SAS Drive at Port 1I : Box 1 : Bay 3
72 GB SAS Drive at Port 1I : Box 1 : Bay 4
Logical Drive 2 ( 69973 MB, RAID 1+0 )
SAS Array C
146 GB SAS Drive at Port 2I : Box 1 : Bay 5
146 GB SAS Drive at Port 2I : Box 1 : Bay 6
146 GB SAS Drive at Port 2I : Box 1 : Bay 7
Logical Drive 3 (279964 MB, RAID 5 )
Any idea what can be done? I have already rebooted the server once to see if that would help.
Appreciate the help...
