T310 foreign configuration and missing drive

Hello,

I have a T310 running SBS 2008.

I wanted to clean it of dust so I shut it down and sprayed and vacuumed.
The server would not boot past to post.

It showed foreign configuration. I went into the Raid configuration and looked at the VD and it showed offline.
I looked at the physical disks and it shows HDD 0 as missing, HDD 1 foreign and HDD 2 & 3 as online.

Also the raid battery may be dead.
I'm at a loss here as to what to do next.

Also I cannot remember how to get to open manage.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Cepolly

Boot to CTRL-R, highlight controller, F2, Foreign, and IMPORT the foreign configuration.

Thanks.

I just tried it and got a failed to import message with a code of 0xC.

Then you are in trouble.

Did you accept anything along the way, as far as configurations go?

Do you have a backup? You may need it.

Power down, unplug, reseat each drive, plug in, boot to CTRL-R, and try again.

Honestly, I cannot remember. I may have. 

I'll try that.
