Cobalt RAQ XTR - With Raid, Boot Problem

Hi

I accidentally shutdown the power for my Cobalt RAQ Server.

IF you are familiar with the COBALT XTR family line, I could use some help get this box back online.

I am currently able to get it to the maintenance mode and have access to serial port with a terminal connection.

Greatly appreciated.

Messages I get:

You have a mirrored array, one drive has failed completely, and the other is failing.  Unless you have a complete backup, STOP doing anything that might write on that drive!
I would take both drives out of the box, verify their status, and clone the one which works better with a sector-by-sector utility then try it back in the box with another drive handy to rebuild the mirror.
