Even though you set up the RAID 5 you still need to allocate the space to where you want to ie pool, volume etc.

In my IBM X226 server 2 HDD became unavailable in RAID 5 configuration. now I have replaced the hard disks and rebuild process is continuing. 1962 operating system not found error message is being shown...


Raid level 5 gives you some redundancy in your raid however it only allows you to lose one hard drive, two hdd lost would not permit to recover from. the parity bit can rebuild one hard drive but not two, sorry your raid might be lost

In IBM x236 server, one swap drive amber led is blinking


Please check how the disks are configured?
If mirrored and second mirror is avaliable you can
replace the disk. (It is the same if the raid5 configured.)

You can download the Hardware Maintenance manual from ibm to
help you in the disk replacement process:

Xseries 346 wont boot


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.
