Sounds like the "Smart" status on one of the drives is degraded or one of the drives has failed.

Drive replacement and rebuil ding Raid 1 on a Dimension XPS Gen 2


Hmm,tricky, I think your best bet would be to save old drive and do a complete new programme install hopefully you have the discs, then once setup and running, connect old drive as a backup and transfer data you require, there may be a better way, this is what I would seriously consider.

We have hp server ml370 when i restart the server its stopped on attempting boot from hard drive c and never continue


This is because either the image on the hard drive is bad (corrupted, missing boot sector, etc) or because the hard drive itself has some issue like corruption etc.
If this is a mirrored raid array (two drive mirroring each other) I would try to remove one of the drives and boot again. If that does not work reinsert and remove the other drive and try to boot.

regards,
Mike

I need a diagnostic tool for RAID falure code 0. Initial boot indicates degraded condition. DISK scan does not seem to remedy the issue. Did the drive actuually fail? Is there a fix? Primary disk still...


It looks like you have two arrays here. The first one being a mirrored RAID array and has only one disk. This means that the other disk has failed in some sort. This does not mean that the drive is bad, just the RAID failed for some reason. You will need to rebuild the RAID if you want to maintain the same level of redundancy.

You can just attempt a rebuild the RAID to the same drives but if this fails you will want to replace the bad drive. In order to do this you will need to make sure you can tell which drive is which. You do not want to mirror the bad drive to the good one.

If attempting a rebuild to the existing drive does not work or is not an option (because the failed drive could really be bad), you will need to determine which physical drive needs to be replaced. You may be able to hot-swap the drive but if you can power things down, that is always safest. Once the new drive is installed, you can rebuild to it and all should be well after that.

hi!
This is a quite serious matter to be solved. The information you have provided is not enough at all.
What you have to include in here:
  1. First, Be precise. Don't assume.
  2. How did you recognized the failure. Which indicators or POST/BIOS/RAID BIOS reported you the errors? Was it from the OpenManageSA?
  3. Please specify the Hardware Controller model and manufacturer with the version (RAID controller).
  4. Which Operating System do you run (or ran)?
  5. Are these disks Hot Swappable?
  6. Have you used hardware RAID controller or software RAID? Provided by OS.
  7. Do you have Dell OpenManage Server Administrator?
  8. How do you describe the RAID configuration? Are you sure that Disk 1 and 4 are mirrored to 2 and 3? You must be precise. Because raids can be used in many ways. You can combine any two disks and mirror them to any two disks. Even though it prevents hard drive failures, if your OS had an issue Mirrors may not be an option to recover it.
  9. That message is a Warning Message. However Drive Roaming has completed. You don't need to worry about that.
  10. If your BIOS has associated firmware controllers you could rebuild the array. But you may have to add new disks to replace others. You may need to update the firmware if necessary.
  11. Then if you plan to use disk 2 and 3, you have to position them to 1 and 4. Then try to rebuild the array. But you may have to have Controller Drive installed on the disk. That varies from type to type. So I cannot say exactly. However if the mirroring of the OS is done to one disk, that disk would be enough. But you have to be certain. Reconfiguring should be done using both the disks replaced if you do not know anything about the configuration.
  12. Check BOOT ORDER. Change it if necessary. If disks fail again check one by one and repair them using a separate machine.
  13. Use Dell Software (OpenManage Server Administrator, if its the one available). Rebuild and or Resync the array.
  14. If boot record errors occur, you have to boot from CD/DVD and repair the Boot Record and/or MBR.
  15. If you need any other issue like BSOD, please write them down. Make sure the OS is not corrupted. If you backed up the System Status, restore it in such a case. Do an In-place Upgrade otherwise (will replace the OS files only, not data).
  16. Use the manuals for Dell Server and RAID Controller if you do not know how to use properly.
  17. If all the options are not working, you have to contact an engineer at Dell.
Feel free to contact again.
Thanks for using Fixya!

A well meaning~idiot teenager changed my set up on my Dell Dimension in BIOS to Intell ARRAY.. now I cannot bring Windows up


If the well meaning teenager took a non-raid configuration and created a RAID array, then any data on the drives was destroyed.

If you reply with the RAID array and HDD status information from the boot screen (THE intel Raid Controller will report the status of the array, degraded, normal or Failed and the status of each HDD member or non-member disk.) With that information I MAY be able to assist in getting the system to boot

Dell XPS w/Mirrored drives. No C drive when using boot disk.


As RAID uses block for block copy, a re-sync when adding in a new mirror on RAID 1 will take some time, and system performance will be affected during that time period. There is no indication in windows if the rebuild is complete as this is being done on a hardware level by the controller. Both Raid 5 and RAID 10 have added benefits , but alos require more storage (a lot more in case of RAID 10 as you will have effectivly 3 spares for 1 data.) Raid 5 has the best space/protection pay off, but will be slightly slower than both RAID 1 and RAID 0 as parity has to be calculated for each write. As caffineshark states your best option is to use a combination of the methods we have described:

1) Use the two SATA disks as RAID 0 for performance and reliability.
2) Make backup images of the boot volume using Drive Image / Ghost and store on external USB IDE drive, and then offsite.

If you make an image in the USB drive, make sure you run a verfiy of the image after creation to make sure it's valid.

This should allow you to restore in a DR sutuation, but also give you some decent HDD crash protection.

Asus A8N SLI RAID showing both drives as "degraded"


This problem usually occurs if: 1) The computer never finished booting 2) A sticky button on you keyboard (F8 or Control Key for win98) 3) Less Memory for windows xp and ME. Try checking if all the memories as well fixed on the board and are being read. 4) Corrupt system files. 5) Incorrect bios configuration (Try changing the bios settings to optimum performance of fail safe to confirm that. All the best.
