Urgent question for anyone please.
I have got a RAID 5 config on a Data volume in a Dell server. One drive went pop today and has failed.. still spins up (as in can feel when ejected) but is classed as failed. This should be ok as my other drives should still run. Oddly another drive is classed as MISSING in the raid controller. Although when I inspect it, it is set as FOREIGN and the RAIDC sees its capacity.
Now I have pulled the bad one and reinserted thats classed as MISSING.
I have tried reinserting the curious MISSING drive.. but no joy..
Original failed drive blinks orange.
MISSING drive is Green. No signs of failure.
I have lost the volume in Windows server 2012 R2... Any ideas as the restore will take some some some time to another server.
Would like to get the volume up and replace the bad drive and let it rebuild but VD is offline due to it seeing 2 drives off.
Any ideas given tonight would be wonderfully accepted :)
OS still boots as the OS VD is good.
Picture of RAID controller screen attached.
Many thanks in advance
