SOURCE: raid w/ hard drive defunct

Well lets make some assumptions
1. You have a Raid 5 System
2. You only have 3 drives in the Raid ARRAY
3. Only 1 drive has failed

To fix the problem you should only need to Replace the Failed Drive
Then start the raid management software or bios
Rebuild the array

If you have more than 1 drive failed in a RAID 5, and still must recover the data it is possible. But very expensive. Still fixable however.

SOURCE: Cant create additional raid

Hi martyblue
Check this for specs:
http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/xref/usxref.pdf

The raid controller onboard is dual channel. Are you using a serveraid card as well? How have you configured the existing arrays? You may need to use the other channel if not already in use. Are the new drives ultra320 drives of same speed?

SOURCE: Upgrade IBM Xseries 346 Server

You can add drives to the array through the scsi management software, then you can extend any dynamic partitions that don't have the OS on them. I don't think you can extend the array if it contains the OS. You may need to use the disk management utility in windows to make the partitions 'dynamic disks' before you can extend the data partitions

You can recover RAID data from hard drive with RAID recovery software easily.
Tenorshare Data Recovery Enterprise is a comprehensive data recovery software that supports RAID recovery for RAID 0 and RAID 5. Lost data in RAID 0 and RAID 5 can be deeply scanned and restored immediately. Meanwhile, files and folders in RAID 0 and RAID 5 can be copied to other partitions directly. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoveryenterprise.htm

I have IBM eServer with ServeRaid-7K on board controller and have 3 SCSI 73GB hard drives configured in RAID-5 array. Hard Drives are running critically low on space and I bought 3 300GB scsi Ultra320 hard...


First, buy an external storage device, at least 80GB (although it's currently difficult to find any _smaller_ size!) and make a file-by-file, folder-by-folder, backup of your 73GB of "data".

Second, buy another external storage device, and do a Google-search for "drive image freeware".
Pick one of those applications, and do a "image" backup to this second external storage device.

Third, disconnect the 3 "old" drives, carefully label them, and set them aside.

Fourth, connect the 3 "new" drives, delete the old RAID-5 array definition,
and create a new RAID-5 array definition.

Fifth, do an "image restore" from the second external storage device to the new array.

If you have any problems, all you need to do to "back-out" is to:
* disconnect the "new" drives
* reconnect the "old" drives
* delete the "new" array definition
* redefine the "old" array definition

and you're back to the "old" configuration.

I fried one of my graid drives how do i get the other to work


The G-Raid drives use RAID-0 which splits data across both internal drives, so unfortunately the remaining drive will not be able to be used to recover any files as it will only have fragments of each file on it - the other fragments having been lost on the faulty drive. Also, you will need to contact G-Tehcnology to get a replacement drive - the drives used (from memory I think they are Hitachi) have special firmware on them and other drives will not be compatible and you'll start getting strange errors.
G-RAID drives are designed for high-throughput work like video editing, not for redundancy - they should be treated as a single drive where if the data is important you have a copy of it on another drive. Keeping data on only one drive is not a back-up, it's a problem waiting to happen. Sorry I couldn't give you any good news.

How do i get a IBM Xseries server to recognize a serverraid card


IBM Serverguide will most likely get you going again. Go this link:
http://www-947.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=SERV-GUIDE&brandind=5000008. You can download the ISO image for the version of Serverguide that will let you configure your system. If you have a Xseries 360 version 7.2.03 should work.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Physical drives not found


I"t says one logical drive is offline and two physical drives are defunct."


sounds like RAID. Try booting up off of one drive. If there is no OS, try keeping one drive in the drive bay and see if you get a orange light then. like dereknewland said, could be the backplane.

Want to run both Raid 5 (4 drives) and a single SATA boot drive


Download the latest beta BIOS 1238. I had the same problem when adding a Samsung 1TB HDD to my RAID config. Updating to BIOS v1238 solved the Intel RAID Matrix "hanging" instantly.

You can't download it through the official Asus support page yet, but there's a topic in the Asus support forum with a link. You could also call Asus support and request the file, or just download it here: http://rapidshare.com/files/186891601/P5B-Deluxe_1238.rar :)

Drive array problem


Hi Nick ,

As of now you can Select "F2" to accept data loss and re-enable logical drive. This Load OS Normally .
It seems that one of the HDD in the RAID 5 has failed , Did you notice any LED indications like red or amber on the HDDs ?? if so get that hdd replaced . Make sure the Failed HDD is replaced .
You can run the Array Diagnostic Utility from HP System tools to check the Failed Drives and also frimware version of the controller . If the frimware is not latest Update it from HP website. DL380 G4 should have Smart Array 6i controller .

Hope This was Helpful
cheers :)

Help please to restore the failed raid


Well if your data is gone at this point, you mines well just proceed with rebuilding a new RAID 5 set with your replacement drive. Even if one drive fails in a RAID 5 set, your logical drive should still be accessible. Goodluck.
