run check disk on raid array from command prompt
Posted on 2014-09-16
I have a Dell Power Edge with Windows 2003 Standard Edition server.
The operating system C drive is on two drives mirrored and I also have a raid 5 array with storage for files which is the D drive.
I replaced a hot swap power supply and three of the drives in the raid 5 array went offline.
I was able to get them back online using Open Manage, but one of the drives lost its data and had to be rebuilt. The rebuild went fine but when I rebooted the server it wanted to run a check disk on the RAID 5 array, so I let it run.
The check disk got to a certain point and then seemed to be hung up, it was not progressing. I needed to get this server back up since it runs the license managers for programs so I powered it off/on and cancelled the disk check on the raid array since it was not the os drives. The license manger software runs from the C drive.
The server came up but told me the D drive raid array needed to be checked. When I try to run the check disk from the command prompt it wants me to dismount the drives.
If I say yes will the drives dismount automatically?
How do I re-mount the drives when the disk check finishes?
Any help is appreciated.
