DL380 Raid Array

I have a DL380 the boot drive in slot 0 has been corrupted. We cannot boot to a level for the mirrored disk in slot 1 to re-sync with the new disk.
Is there a way of booting from the mirrored disk currently in slot1?

What happens if you boot the system up with only the good disk from the mirror pair?

Re: DL380 Raid Array

Is this a Hardware Raid?

The Dl380 does have an onboard array controller.
In case of a Hardware Raid 1,if one drive fails the second drive should automatically takeover.

Did the Drive in Slot 0 failed or the OS got corrupted.

What is the message that you get once the server boots up with the drive in Slot 1 alone?

Re: DL380 Raid Array

Thank you for your replies.

It appears after further investigation that the server was built with RAID 5 not 0+1 as previously thought.

Therefore having lost two out of four disks the data could not be rebuilt from the parity.

We have since rebuilt the server and restored from backup.

Re: DL380 Raid Array

After further investigation the server configuration was different to previously thought. Therefore the problem was no longer relevant.
