Hi,

I have a x3650 ibm server with 4 sas 300 gb disks running raid 5-write trough-no batterypack-Batterypack is on its way) .

I have just installed the server, with vmware.

I noticed that the 2 w2008 servers i had installed started running randomly slow. I've checked VMware, and it seams there is a raid problem. However all 4 disks is running and the raid dosent come out with a error. However vmware, shows errors. Have i configured the raid in a wrong way? Or does the server have a hd errror? The server is brand new.

Check the pictures with logs from vmware.

TIA!

You RAID array is failing.

Check using IBM RAID software, why the RAID has failed.

It does not matter how you configure the RAID (RAID 10 faster than RAID 5), but those errors indiciate a disk failure in the RAID array.
