I understand your concern, the Foreign Configuration error is simply stating that the Virtual Disk configuration data on the drive is different than what is on the H710P. An Import is the act of taking the configuration data from the HDD and using that data to tell the controller the configuration, where Clearing the Foreign configuration tells it to clear the HDD's version of the configuration data, and to use the configuration data from the controller.
Now with your situation what we need to determine is if the Virtual Disk is still accessing the OS, as well as all the data. If so then we will need to Clear the Foreign, if the OS and data are not currently available then we need to Import the data. You can read more about the Foreign and process here. If you also Private Message me the Svc tag, I can confirm the hardware for you.
Let me know what you see.
Thank you Chris. Your information was correct. The foreign import configuration successfully reloaded the meta-data and the server came back up giving us enough time to move off critical data.
Thank you for your help.
Solved! Thanks to your info CHRIS.
