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.

HI, It appears you may have a failed "physical" drive in your Raid set on the server. The system will run fine with one failed drive, but it is recommended to have the drive replaced by it's vendor, or vendor representative. If the 2nd drive in your raid set fails. You will loose your logical drive and all your data on this drive.
You may wish to confirm you have successful, recent backups, just in case another disk fails before your failed drive has been replaced.

How do I make IBM 346 server detect a scsi disk


Make sure it is connected properly and that it is displayed either in the motherboard's setup screen or in your SCSI controller setup screen.

Both of these locations can only be accessed during the computers POST which is before the operating system starts.

Once the hardware is recognized by disk controller your operating system will "see" the disk and allow you to manage it.

I hope this helps.

Physical drives not found


I"t says one logical drive is offline and two physical drives are defunct."


sounds like RAID. Try booting up off of one drive. If there is no OS, try keeping one drive in the drive bay and see if you get a orange light then. like dereknewland said, could be the backplane.

Upgrade IBM Xseries 346 Server


You can add drives to the array through the scsi management software, then you can extend any dynamic partitions that don't have the OS on them. I don't think you can extend the array if it contains the OS. You may need to use the disk management utility in windows to make the partitions 'dynamic disks' before you can extend the data partitions
