Dell MD3000i SAN had 2 drives fail and now MDSM is offline.
I had 1 drive fail on my SAN and then the hot spare also went into a failing state. But all other 12 drives were still lit up green and the storage array was accessible, SAN is in a RAID 5 array.
I replaced both drives one right after the other (which I think was a mistake), and then the SAN went offline. Eventually in came back on, but only the 2 drives I replaced are lit up green now, and the other 12 are not. Every few seconds I see a flash of green lights where it looks like all 12 are trying to light up but don't. The solid amber light is on the front on the SAN as well? Support is no longer offered from Dell so any help would be great.
Also, the drives on the server that are mapped to the SAN are still operational, so hopefully you can help me get it working again, but I am not familiar with the CLI, so if anyone knows some commands that would be great?
and the Dell support site for it: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/powervault-md3000i/manuals
Your first step would probably be to check to see what the RAID Controller says for the arrays status. You should be able to check it via its web configuration page or possibly rebooting the server and hitting the key combination that enters the controllers configuration when prompted during POST.
Hopefully that gets you pointed in the right direction.
I almost forgot... on the Dell Manual page linked above there is a 'Dell PowerVault Modular Disk Storage Arrays CLI Guide'.
