Equallogic Status Initializing

Hello Guys

In a equallogic, two disk failed and all server lost communication with the Storage.

In the console show me:

The storage array is still initializing. Limited commands will be available unt
il the initialization is complete. Please try again later.

The storage have five days the same message and when running ecli show me:

ecli> hs
Health Status (0x0000010100000120): RED Conditions:
CACHE_SYNCING_CONDITION
RAID_SET_LOSTBLK_ENTRY_CONDITION
RAID_SET_DOUBLE_FAULTED_CONDITION
RAID_ORPHAN_CACHE_CONDITION
ecli>

Re: Equallogic Status Initializing

Hello, 

 Your RAIDset has failed beyond it's ability to function.  RAID5?   

  It will not heal itself or recover. 

  Until that can be resolved there's no way to access the data on those drives. 

  Since files are not stored individually on each drive.  The data is striped across them. 

   You probably want to consider sending the drives to a recovery service to have them cloned and as much data as possible recovered from the defective ones.  That could allow the RAID to recover and boot up.  There could be some missing data. 

   Regards,

Don
