VA7410 Not enough drives

On our VA7410 array all of the disks have both lights on them as if they are faulted and when I perform a dsp -d it says that there are no disks installed. I just want to get the array reformatted and back up but can't get it from telling me that there are "Not Enough Drives".

I got into this state by deleting all the LUNs and re-fibering the raid to a different card on my rp7410. Any thoughts?

Re: VA7410 Not enough drives

Since you want to reformat anyway you could just try and pull one of the disks and reseat it, see if the state of this disk changes. As a next step you could restart the array and see if anything changes.

Guess the next options would be to power down, remove batteries from the controllers, re-insert batteries and controllers and restart the array. But anyway you should talk to HP first, and do what they recommend.

Re: VA7410 Not enough drives

Thanks for the reply. It turns out we just had our fibre connected to the wrong ports. I was about to remove the batteries when we figured it out.
