How can I access data from a raid array from a broken server?
I have a real situation brewing and I've not got any experience in what to do next. A clients server has broken down and it's proving to be next to impossible to fix it. The server has a raid card into which there are 4 hot swap SAS drives plugged in. I have no idea what RAID method was used as I didn't set the server up.
I desperately need to recover a folder that wasn't backed up from this array and need some help as to how on earth I can go about accessing the data. Being a SAS drive I can't just plug it into my office computer or use a SATA adapter I've got.
Can anyone please give me the most straight forward way that I can use to try and access the info on the drives without having access to another SAS server.
