Had a glitch this morning with our raid 5 array.  I resynced the array and said all was good but now there are two exact array using the same drive.  I fear if I delete one it will delete both.  Its an adaptec drive array controller.  I have vmware on the server and its not seeing the config to boot correctly because of the ghosted array.  Any ideas.

Hi,

I think it will be more of a challenge when you need to rebuild an array. Is it possible for you to post a screenshot?

Cheers

there are only 4 hard drives in this computer.  So its like they are a ghost array that is exaclty the same.
