Hi,
there are many types of raid, which type of raid you are talking of, if you are talking of raid which use mirroring of data, in that case if one drive is lost there is no data loss, when you add a new drive for that bad drive, and then the data on the working drive will be mirrored on the new drive added,

Further Queries are welcome

Following arrays have missing required members and cnnot be configured: Array#1-RAID-0


RAID 0 will fail with a single drive loss. So if you lost a drive, you lost the array, and most likely your datas. It should never be used in a production environment, because it can not be rebuilt.

Operating system corrupted how to recover the data


RAID is only to protect data in case of hard drive failure. Data is only recoverable from backup.

However, if you have a separate arrays for the OS and data. Meaning two arrays, you can swap arrays onto an identical server with same array configuration. Drive positions (bay /slot) are critical.

I have a server with a Serveraid 4H controller card, set up with two Arrays. Array B has 3 72GB drives set up as RAID 5. I would like to add 2 more drives to this array. Is this possible or do I have to...


I am not familiar with your RAID controller card but as long as the controller can see two additional drives, it shouldn't be difficult to add two new drives to your exisiting RAID 5 configuration.

You will probably need to reinitialize the RAID configuration for discs to copy all the parity information so you should refer to the documentation on re-initializing the RAID.

Need to increase the hdd size in a dell poweredge 1600sc with raid 1


You will not be able to increase the hdd size of a raid array, it's size is set. If you need more storage, you can add additional drives ( either in raid or standalone ) and use the new drive(s) for storage, but the original array will remain unchanged. The other option is to back up all of your data, install new drives and create a new array.

Data recovery


Unfortunately, a three disk RAID 5 can only tolerate a single drive failure. Is it possible that disk 0 and disk 1 were reversed? If so, then you might be dealing with only one failed drive and might be able to rebuild the RAID if you get disks back where they belong.

Otherwise, you will need to send the disks off to a data recovery service and hope for the best. This is only viable if the data is very valuable as this will be very expensive. Typically more than $1000 just to evaluate and diagnose.

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 :)

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.
