ML350 with SmartArray 642 - waiting for rebuild

ML 350 G3 with SN: 80BLKZRZ3B and PID: 470062-121

Changing a disk with a new one we get the information "waitin for rebuild" on the new disk and nothing is changing.

Any suggestion about this problem? I attach the ADU report.

Many thanks in advance.

Regards

Smart Array 642
Firmware 1.92 (needs updating, we are in 2.80 now)

01-29-2009 14:38:27 Rebuild aborted due to read error, logical drive 00000000. Replacement drive 8 Error drive 7
01-29-2009 14:47:23 Rebuild aborted due to read error, logical drive 00000000. Replacement drive 8 Error drive 7


Physical Drive 2:0 A lot of Medium Error (Read Retries Exhausted)
COMPAQ BD03686223
Read Errors Hard 395
Read Errors Retry Recovered 50
Recovers Failed Read 33


I'm sorry but you have 2 drives with errors in this RAID, so it does not rebuild
You replaced drive 8, but drive 7 has a lot of errors and data rebuild fails every time

Since this logical unit is a RAID 5 formed by
Physical Drive 2:0
Physical Drive 2:1
Physical Drive 2:2

And one has been replaced and the other is damaged, the data probably cannot be recovered

I upgraded the firmware at the level 2.84.
Nothing changed.
So the only solution is to destroy and re-create the array?

Regards and Thanks in advance.

I attached the new report in zip format.

Re: ML350 with SmartArray 642 - waiting for rebuild

If you have it still around you can try to put disk 8 back again
Are you sure it was failed? Maybe you replaced the wrong one.
Disk 7 is the one that is giving a lot of errors and breaking the rebuild process.
Of course if drive 8 was really kaput and drive 7 is having read errors, you're toast.

Yes the other was faulty and replaced. So if i replace the other one the raid is gone (i suppose). Correct?

Yes, it cannot rebuild as the information cannot be read from disk 7. So you only have one healthy disk out of 3.
