Re: RAID Failed?

sort of. When I installed my 3ware hardware raid controller on my new Mandrake 2006 server, smartctrl is there too. i need to get it scheduled and whatnot. no more fake or soft raid for me. im sick of it.

the drive was bad. a 3rd drive that i had copied stuff onto during this failure went bad as well. luckily i had also forced myself copied to cdrom.

Gotta love Maxtor...In fairness they were probably cooking for 3 years now. But when i put the drive on the dead shelf I noticed a twin :P obviously that '3rd' drive was the 2nd drive in an old raid set a while back...

Have you installed and run smartctl to get a health check on the drives?

my raid is spitting errors into the log and whatnot. I am trying to figure out the problem but am not entirely sure how to go about it. Can you interpret this info?

this type of stuff has been happening for over a week now. Do I need to reset my computer? Maybe the HD locked up or something? I don't want to reset it because this is actually not the first time drives have started to do this on this computer. When I reset typically it cant find drives and whacky stuff happens. I leave computer off for a few days and then it starts up and runs for several months without a hitch. Everything is backed up so I can reset it. Just am not looking forward to the attempt...

This is RH9 on an ABIT NV7-133R (nforce) board I believe with external graphics).

Thank you,
