Compaq 3000 (SmartArray 3200) installed with SME6 (RedHat 7.3 based) is just died!!!

Hi everyone!

Strangest thing happened and I really hope I can salvage some data.

I've had my Compaq 3000 (SmartArray 3200 with RAID5) running over 3 years now and everything were running just fine. Lately I've had plans of upgrading everything to a ML530.

Anyway, last week it stopped responding, on console svc was complaining about not being able to write logs to a file.

I tried to stop it with CTL-C and CTL-Z and tried to login for 15-20 mins but messages kept coming. I tried Clt-Alt-Del to boot server that didn't work either.

I then hard booted server and got kernel panic.
Kernel panic no init found Try passing init=

I tried a few things to see if I have any files left
1- RedHat 7.3 Rescue mode - It says there are no Linux partitions so it quits. When I check
# fdisk /dev/ida/c0d0

I see 3 Linux partitions (boot, sap and root-partition)

Found some info about cpqarray in the page

2- I tried with Knoppix 3.3 and 4.02, I can mount boot-partition but there are almost no files in partition.

3- I started server with SmartStart 5.0 and it looks like both array-card and battery are OK.

Anyone has any sugestions? Appriciate any help.
Best rgds, Ergin

UPDATE: I found these in my firewall logs, looks like the server was hacked. Anyone has a clue?
