Disk 4 "is not ready"


> it does detect it on controller initiation.

Even when the drive is not spinning, it will identify itself (manufacturer, capacity) when queried. So, it's possible that it "checks-in", but files/directories on it cannot be read.

Raid configuration


That's probably because RAID 5 only tolerates 1 HD failure, (unless you have hot spares, in which case you can have many failures -provided only one fails at the same time...).

RAID 5 arrays can tolerate no more than one member drive failure.

Raid 7k controller not responding properlly error 2807


This could be an issue with the Raid backplane. If under warranty I would replace the backplane.
Even if no warranty you might be able to find one cheaply used.

I have a server with a Serveraid 4H controller card, set up with two Arrays. Array B has 3 72GB drives set up as RAID 5. I would like to add 2 more drives to this array. Is this possible or do I have to...


I am not familiar with your RAID controller card but as long as the controller can see two additional drives, it shouldn't be difficult to add two new drives to your exisiting RAID 5 configuration.

You will probably need to reinitialize the RAID configuration for discs to copy all the parity information so you should refer to the documentation on re-initializing the RAID.

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.

Raid 0 on Intellistation 6221?


That particular work station comes with both IDE and SCSI drive interface controllers. The IDE drive should be used for your OS. The SCSI drives for your data storage. Now, the issue is to get the SCSI to work in RAID_0 as I understand.

You iwll need a RAID controller such as Adaptec AHA-3940AU WD SCSI Host Controller, which may be found on eBay (used) for a very affordable price. The driver software may be downloaded directly from Adaptec, so I suggest you do that in the iterim peroid, and store drivers on a USB thumb drive.

Hope this helps you.

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)

Raid 5 crashed


Hi Chris,

How many drives are part of the array and what type are they? Are the drives making any unusual sounds like clicking or screeching? If not, then you should be able to recover the data. If the drives are making clicking sounds, you will probably need a professional data recovery service that specializes in Raid 5 data recovery to help you.

If the controller shows that only 1 drive is bad, you should be able to rebuild it by replacing that drive. If the controller shows all the drives are bad, then it is most likely a problem with the Raid 5 controller itself. In this case, you could try putting the drives in a working version of the same enclosure/controller.

Check the obvious also, like loose connections to the drives. Whatever you do, dont force a rebuild as this will probably result in permanent data loss.
