No hard drive lights on raid 1 and raid 10
Posted on 2012-08-29
I have a server with three raids (1, 10,1). There are a total of 14 hard drives. For some reason each raid has one "bad" hard drive (no lights) for a total of three. I say "bad" because i don't think the hard drives that are bad. We replaced the hard drive with new ones and still the same. We also replaced the backplane, motherboard, raid controller and the cables. Pretty much we replaced everything. The system still works but if one more hard drive fails, we will have problems. I was told to recreate the raid and start fresh but i am trying to avoid that. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
