I have a windows 2000 server running on a SuperMicro server with an Adaptec 2010S raid controller configured as a raid-5 with hot spare.
Last week we had a drive failure and a few weird things happened. Replacement drive is in and array is now optimal. System seems to be behaving normally. However one of the last things I did was an Acronis system image of the array. Almost at the end Acronis reported that there was a read error from drive 2. From my past experience with Acronis, every time I get a read error, a subsequent surface scan reveals a failing hard drive.
I haven’t found any information from Adaptec about performing individual surface scans on the drives. Anyone have any suggestions on how I should proceed?
