I have a PE 2850 Server that I had a drive fail in, replaced the drive and it looked like it was rebuilding, but after the rebuild, it says degraded.  What should I do?

    Either restart the server or preferably, restart all the Open Manage Servers, there should be 4 of them that all start with DSM_

    Then look again, i see the rebuild start but i don't see it showing finished

    I have restarted the server and it did nothing.

    Do you mean restart the services?

    restarting the server flushed the TTY log (Controller Log), Charles is trying to see if he can find where the log reports the rebuild completed.

    Degraded can mean a bunch of things; can you export and repost the current TTY Log.

    Don't know why the previous 5 reboots did nothing.  Rebooted it last night and now the raid is showing up fine.  Who Knows!  Thanks for the help!
