There was an issue with our linux server, one of the Raid1 drives is degraded so it was removed and a new one is ordered. After rebooting it the workstations connected with no issues to the server. The following morning I could ping the server I cannot SSH or see the samba share, after rebooting it again everything cleared up. This is now the third morning and the server has to be rebooted. I am going to add the messages log if it helps, any suggestions?

Sorry, centos5 does not install KVM automatically.
Since it is a n inherited system and EOL any time now, I would recommend to repeat setup with most current CentOS7

Since both disks are bought in the very same shop on the very same day and come from same assembly line - they are very likely to faile shortly after eachother.
Also system drivers are often not coping with degraded storage well.

Actually you get past mounting root filesystem, it would be beneficial to show system boot screen where it is stuck. Could be duplicate IP (check nmap -O - maybe windows in DHCP pool or so)

Is this hardware RAID1 ?

Does the filesystem mount ?

if you are not able to SSH to the server, how did you reboot it ?

Could it be a duplicate IP address on the network ?

Could it be a duplicate MAC address on the network

Have you checked the switch that it connects to to see if the port goes down when not accessible ?

Hello because the server could not be down any longer I ended up reinstalling which I wish I did not have to go that route. I replaced the degraded drive and reinstalled and things have been good since.
