Question about IBM xSeries 346 Server
I have a IBM xSeries 346. It was showing 1 hard disk defunct. I boot through the diagnose cd and tried to rebuild. It didnt work. So I replaced it with another hard disk (same model) and rebuild it. After rebuilding was completed, I reset the server but it wont boot. It shows a blank screen and nothing happens. I have windows server 2003 as a operating system and also use raid 5. I really need to solve this to get some data from the disk and I really aprettiate any help, suggestions, etc.
You don't say whether or not your os is on the RAID 5 partition. Assuming that it is (for performance reasons, this is not recommended) then you should check to see if you have the option of configuring a separate raid configuration on your raid card (e.g. do you have a card with more then one RAID channel?) If this is so, I would create a separate RAID 1 array and install the OS just on that. Then you can mount the RAID 5 array with your data intact. Once you're up and running, you can remove the old OS partition, as it's no longer needed.
