Missing RAID on BL25p

 

Missing RAID on BL25p

Hi,

Last night we suffered two dead drives at the same time on the same machine. It didn't seem likely that both drives died at the same time, so we simply moved the drives to a complely new blade and booted to save time.

Both drives turns up green, great! However, when I boot the server I don't see any information about the RAID and I'm not able to boot the server from the disks at all. We even tried to change the RAID unit to see if there any changes.

Old blade, old raid: red disks
New blade, new raid: green disks, can't find raid on boot
Old blade, new raid: green disks, can't find raid on boot
New blade, old raid: red disks


regards,
Robin

Recreate the mirror set and try to boot from it.

I'm not able to do anything. The controller isn't showing up on boot after iLO as it normally does.

Re: Missing RAID on BL25p

Had you tried one drive at time only with server where 6i detected?

Re: Missing RAID on BL25p

Yes, I tried using the detected raid and one drive, and the raid doesn't detect either one of the drives.

The server also halts after a few minutes, which seems kinda wierd.

I'm going the try the old blade, old controller and a brand new disk to see if that comes around.
