A couple years ago I purchased two used Adaptec 8805 RAID controller cards off of eBay and just started using these controller cards two months ago.
Both controller cards keep beeping non-stop while being used even though I have changed and used different known good working hard drives.
These controller cards are unable to maintain RAID 1 or RAID 5 arrays and while they have individual hard drives connected to them (in non RAID arrays) they also don't work properly and say that the hard drives connected to them are degraded.
I want to contact Adaptec tech support to have these two RAID controller cards replaced but first I want to be sure that they will fail whatever tests Adaptec requires that they fail in order for them to be replaced.
So what utilities or other programs can be downloaded or used to prove that these RAID controller cards are indeed defective?
