We are currently having construction done on our building, and the construction crew cut off power to my server room while I was at lunch. The UPS's went hard, but didnt last long enough for me to find out and get them to restore power. Because of it, A few of my servers and my storage array had the power cut abruptly. The array is a Dell emc-ax4 enclosure connected via iSCSI to a windows server 03 machine. After I rebooted, the iSCSI connection was initially gone, but I was able to reconnect after re-configuring and my data was there. However, all the data is now "read only" i am able to uncheck the read only box and apply, but It gives me errors and Does Not remove the read only attribute. I found this article and tried these commands, but it says they cannot remove the attribute. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/326549
