Re: PowerEdge 2900 - Windows Server 2003 R2

In my opinion, you are looking at a corrupt RAID array rather than a bad controller (your good/remaining disk has an unreadable block(s) that it cannot replicate to the rebuilding drive).  Of course, you could replace the controller to see - or if you don't believe me - but you will likely find it will fail again.  DOA drives happen, however, having two is very unlikely.  Assuming you have the drives in a backplane, you might consider trying a different slot, and/or reseating both ends of the cable (controller and backplane) to ensure a proper connection.
