Question about SuperMicro COMPUTER Supermicro AOCLPZCR2 ZeroChannel RAID (672042000210) Storage Controller

1 Answer

SuperMicro RAID Controller AOC-LPZCR2 RAID5 Array 7x136GB SCSI disk + Hotspare. Array members CTRL 0 Disk 0-3, CTRL 1 Disk 0-2 Hotspare CTRL 1 Disk 3 The array failed when 2 disks went bad at what seems to me was at the same time or before the spare disk could take over. When I boot up the system I can access the RAID Utility but it prompts me to accept/reject config change. If I reject, I can see my Array config and see that there are 2 bad drives 0-2 and 1-0 If I choose accept, I cant see my array and but I have access to the disk utilities. I tried to put in a new disk to see if the array would rebuild but no luck. I am thinking that the RAID config on the disks may be corrupt and was wondering if there was a way using this controller to reload the config to the new disk. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have got a 3 disk raid5 IBM xseries Server which does not boot. How can I resque data from these disks?


I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that you don't have a good backup of the data on your RAID array. So, generally speaking, the operating system is probably installed on a separate disk from your raid array (not a guarantee). But if this is so then you should be able to reinstall your operating system and drivers (esp RAID controller) to that (separate) disk and you're off to the races (replace this system disk if necessary). -OR- Depending on the make of your RAID controller you may be able to transplant your RAID controller into another machine and all the original drives along with it, so long as it has a battery backup and you place all the drives in their original order. If there is no battery backup on your RAID controller then DON'T PULL THE PLUG ON THE ORIGINAL MACHINE AND DON'T EVEN CONSIDER removing the RAID controller in any way. If you have any doubts, whatsoever, have someone with experience in RAID arrays do the work for you. It will be well worth it! (RAID arrays aren't for the faint of heart)...

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.

Confuguring raid5


Hi

You would need 4 Hard disk drives in total. you would need to create 2 RAID 0 (striping) and then Mirror them (RAID 1). to elaborate, HDD A&B will be at RAID 0 as well as HDD C&D. after, you would have to Mirror your two RAID 0. (raid 0+1 is also known as raid 5)

Hope this helps.

Can a raid5 be expanded to include an additional disk on the dac960prl or must the raid be destroyed and re-created?


Hi,

As a rule of thumb, a raid 5 array can be expanded to include additional drives. This is done during the boot process and then going into your RAID controller setup. You would then go into the RAID configuration and add the new drive to the array. This was the simplified explanation but i think you get the idea.

Things to consider,
DO NOT remove the RAID array unless you dont care about losing data.
DO NOT try to add a smaller drive than what is currently part of the array.
When possible, the new drive should be identical to the existing drives, but I have added same size, same speed more than once and it will work.
All of the drives you want as part of the array must be on the same controller.

Hope this helps,
Brian

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.

Not getting a drive letter from Compaq SCSI RAID setup


Did you see any new drives in the disk managemen screen? To get to the disk management, hold window key down and hit 'R', then type diskmgmt.msc and hit enter.

If you do see the drive in the lower half of the screen, you need to initialize the drive either as dynamic disk or basic disk. Then you need to add a new partition and format it.

Good luck.

Problem with creating array


The Perc RAID controller in a 2600 doesn't support RAID 4.
You can do RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 5.

With 3 HDD's your best bet would be a RAID 5.

Mirroring is RAID 1 (which would only use 2 of the drives)
