RE: Degraded RAID 1 Array:PowerEdge 2800
0. No offence taken 🙂
1. That was my first thought.
2. Yes I'm sure it's certified - I got it from a certified partner for out-of-warranty Dell Spares, and yes I have another 2800 I can test it on before I do anything else, that was my second thought.
3. BIOS Firmware A07, PERC 4e/Di Firmware 5B2D, Driver Version 22.214.171.124, Storport Driver Version 5.2.3790.3959, then it says Minimum required storport driver version 5.2.3790.4173?
4. Could be. This is a Mail Server for 100 employee's - downtime is ultra critical - That's why I'm half tempted to leave it well alone until we can get a new server sorted, but ultimately I don't want to be leaving a degraded array realistically. A rock and a hard place comes to mind.
I totally appreciate your immediate replies by the way, thank you!
