RAID 5 Drive Removed Issue?
We have a PowerEdge T340 with a H730P adapter. I have an issue with a RAID5 array. I arrive on Friday (everything has been completely normal) to see the server has one flashing drive bay light that is orange. (All the rest are green.) Bad drive time to replace, right? I go into RAID controller software however and see this:
The second disk has never been removed, hot swapped, anything of the nature. I have tried to reseat it--take it out and put it back in. I understand one disk failing but don't understand why the second disk would show removed if it is in the machine with a green light.
I have the option of going in and importing the foreign configuration (see below) but wanted to discuss it with some other professional before make it worse. (We just fired the IT company that was handling this server as the backup status is still TBD.)
