Smart Array P400 - Code 271

Hi all,

 

i hope you can help me here! Im using a Smart Array P400 controller in a desktop pc for a small fileserver at home. im using there a raid 5 with 4 sata disks. Now one disk is damaged! First i wasnt sure if the disk is really broken and the configuration utility said that I should try to check all cable. I did that and all seems fine!

 

I shutdown the system and removed the broken drive. After starting the system, the configuration utility says Code 271 "Logical drive 1 (410.2 GB, RAID5) has failed and cannot be used. All data on this logical drive has been lost. Configuration changes to this logical drive are not allowed until this problem is corrected."

 

But the other 3 disks are still fine, no connection lost or something else was happend here. If im looking now in the windows device manager, i find the logical drive as unformatted drive there.

 

Im asking me now if I replace the damaged disk, will I get access to the data again? Or is there any chance to get the data back? I dont know whats happend here, because only one drive is failing?

 

Can anyone help me?

Hello,

maybe I am wrong, but it looks you removed "wrong" disk. Are you sure it was correct one? Raid 5 is able to recover only from 1 drive broken..

hi,

 

Please attach an ACU report, if it's possible to create it. I'll take a look on it.

Hi,

 

thanks for your response! Yes im sure that ive removed the correct drive. I identify the drive with the serial number and the other 3 drives are still in the logical drive with status ok.

 

@ PGTRI

 

I will create the report tonight! :)

 

 

Today i will get the new drive, do you think I should try to rebuild the raid?

Hello, I am afraid your raid is already destroyed... so trying to reconstruct it won't help.

hi,

 

First at all - you have to back up your data.  After that, you can try to rebuild the drive. I'll wait for the report.

 

Thanks

It looks like the raid isnt rescueable. I installed the new drive and ive no option to rebuild or anything else :-/

 

Ive put the report to the attachments, maybe someon has an idea what i can do now, but it looks like that all have been lost.

Okay, now i can reactivate the array, but this will wipe all drives... thats not really satisfying :(

hi,

 

The FW of the controller is very old - 2.08. The latest version is 7.22 .

You can try to re-enable the logical drive. Please go in  ACU and right-click the logical drive. Click More info , click Re-enable Logical Drive.

 

Thanks

 

regards,
