Inherited a server that is showing a RAID problem
Posted on 2013-12-10
I just picked up a new site and one of the old-ish servers (about 3-4 years old) is an Chartec server based on the Intel RAID controller SROMBSASMR. It is showing "SAS topology error: Device not addressable", but the strange thing is it has no SAS drives. There are 4 SATA drives in a RAID 6 container and all show online and the container itself is not degraded.
I googled the error message, and found many LSI chipset manuals that have the same error code, and error message, but it doesn't say what the error means or how to go about correcting it. So other than reading in the manual it is a possible error, I don;t know my next move.
The RAID log shows this as far back as the beginning of the log, which is earlier this year back in Feb, so I am guessing it has been throwing this for quite some time. Anyone have suggestions how to resolve this?
