This server was originally setup with RAID 1 mirrored drives (OS c drive), and a RAID 5 array with 3 drives (data).
The c: drive mirrored Array A00-00 failed. Data drive array shows "optimal" and appears fine from the controller management.
I have now installed 2 new drives, created a new RAID 1 Array A00-00 mirroring the 2 drives and installed the Operating System to this new partition. After booting to my newly installed partition and operating system I expected to see my RAID 5 Array and data. But I am not seeing them.
The OS shows the PERC driver is installed (default). The mirror array is fine. Just no data array. I have a PERC Windows RAID driver that may or may not be a solution, but want to be certain it won't adversely affect the data array.
Dell 2800 Poweredge server with PERC RAID controller. Windows server 2003 SBS.
Note: This is not critical. Data is backed up. This server is old, the software is old. It's being retired and the data is being moved to a new setup. The data on the partitions is backed up with very small exception so worst case, it is not critical. I would like to recover these partitions simply because it would be better to work with last used data than a backup that might miss a few changed documents.
