We have an HP Server with the HP Smart Array 800 form a client that had a failure. The HP Smart Array says it is in a locked state. One of the drives has failed in the RAID 1 configuration. At least we think it has as it has but it could be the card as well. We have ordered an Identical card to replace the bad one.
Does anyone have suggestions as to how we might go about get these drives to the point where we might be able to retrieve an image of the one that is still in a good state.
I don't know if the problem will be the same on the replacement controller but when it initializes it only gives the option to proceed without the Logical drive or to proceed with the logical Drive but with possible data loss.
Using a recent backup at this point is not an option.
