Possible Server Failuer
Posted on 2015-01-26
HP Proliant DL380 Server with 6 72GB disks in an array. The first disk has failed and the server won't recognize any disks. Message was that the array failed and then another message telling me which disk. If I take that disk out and insert a different 72GB disk in the same slot and then try to install Windows Server 2008 no disks are recognized. If I attempt to repair my computer from the Server 2008 disk the only disk is sees is the external HDD with the backup image on it. Do I have a failed server, failed disks or both? Do I need to remove all the disks in the array and insert the blank disk and try to image it? Please help with this as this is a school server and we need to get back up and running ASAP.
