Drive array problem

Hello, my dl380 g4 have 4 hard disks with the first one configured for the OS (Win 2K sp4) and the remaining 3 as RAID 5 (drive D:). suddenly i lost D: drive and upon checking it says the logical drives are disabled because of a problem. rebooting produces the following message:

779 - Slot 0 Drive Array - Replacement drive(s) detected OR previously failed drive(s) now appear to be operational.

SCSI Port 2: SCSI ID 2

Logical drive(s) disabled due to possible data loss.

Select "F1" to continue with logical drive(s) disabled
Select "F2" to accept data loss and re-enable logical drive(s).

I don't think one drive failure will not disable the logical drive in Raid 5 concept.
Check the BBWC of the Raid controller.

Hi Nick ,

As of now you can Select "F2" to accept data loss and re-enable logical drive. This Load OS Normally .
It seems that one of the HDD in the RAID 5 has failed , Did you notice any LED indications like red or amber on the HDDs ?? if so get that hdd replaced . Make sure the Failed HDD is replaced .
You can run the Array Diagnostic Utility from HP System tools to check the Failed Drives and also frimware version of the controller . If the frimware is not latest Update it from HP website. DL380 G4 should have Smart Array 6i controller .

Hope This was Helpful
cheers :)

When using Raid 5 you should have a utility that will rebuild the damaged drive? Have you tried running this utility? If it fails then you could have a damaged drive in your array and will need to replace it. Once you replace the damaged drive it will start to rebuild your D: drive.

HP proliant DL380 gen4 PXE-E61, when trying to install redhat and solaris.


First, it's not booting from a CD or Hard Disk if you've reached that error. The 'last-ditch' effort to boot is to attempt a PXE boot from the network card, but your Ethernet cable isn't plugged in. Unless you know you've setup such a PXE boot server, you'll want to check the BIOS settings to be sure the CD-ROM is set to boot first, followed by the Hard Disc. Be sure you have Disc 1 of the Linux installation set in the CD-ROM Drive and reboot. If you don't get the install screen, you may have another issue (bad CD-ROM Drive, bad cable/controller, no power to CD-ROM, etc.)

Another note on the DL380, if there is a RAID controller, you'll need to setup the RAID before installing the OS. You'll want to make sure your hard drives are properly installed and aren't failed. The RAID configuration screen will verify the RAID status once it has been initialized, which will somewhat verify the drive status.

How to save a raid0 disk


Raid O is no RAID. Data is lost if the hard drive failed. Always use RAID 1 (mirrored) for OS and RAID 5 (striped) for DATA. That's 5 drives your server should shave been configured with.

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

Meaning of Symbols on Hd rack?


If the server is configured with split SCSI channels these indicate which bays are part of each of the two channels. The common use for this would be to use the split with two drives for a RAID 1 system drive and the remaining four for RAID 5 data or in some cases two sets of RAID 1.
