M,

It looks like you had a disk drive that has failed. Look at the drives, and an amber or red (depending on disk drive type) blinking light should be the culprit.
How to fix it depends on the type of array you are using. You must read the documentation for your hardware, and it should explain how to replace a failed drive. With any luck, it will just be a matter of pulling out the bad disk, and sticking in a new one. The array may just auto-rebuild itself. If you are still unsure, please give more information about your hardware configuration.

Hi Don,


I have a RAID5 with a Compaq SMART ARRAY 642 and 5 hard drives. All drives are blinking green. so I suppose everything is fine. what's wrong now?

Best regards

M,

Do you have the Compaq Array Configuration Utility (ACU) loaded? Use that to go in and check the status of all your hardware. Did the error message just show up the one time, or is it re-accuring? It's possible that the SMART technology in one of the drives is reporting an imminent failure even though it is working for the time being.
