The likelyhood that 2 drives fail at the same time is remote. I would first look to teh controller as the problem. Also, check the power supply. The only common things are the 5V and12V supply.

You need to use download, boot from and use the ServeRAID Support CD and the RAID controller tools on that disc. You cannot modify RAID controller features on the 7k while it is operational and/or in use.

Defunct drive


You could rebuild the defunct drive with the raid program on your server.

i don't know your type and model of your server.

8488 or 8648 and the model 3 digits.

for this you need serveraid manager

http://www-304.ibm.com/jct01004c/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=SERV-RAID&brandind=5000008

please do not update your firmware or drivers at this point if applicable.

if rebuild of a defunct drive doesnt work you'll need to change the drive. remember in a raid 5 you need min. 3 drives.
