Re: array and Raid

Would be best if you recreate all from scratch, it will save your time and more confidentiality all done correctly
See general rules about creating Array

Re: array and Raid

Hi Sandeep,

It looks like you have deleted the array that contains the logical drive where the Operating System is. To be able to get the best help you have to provide all the information and what you need to do
1. What generation server is this?
2. How many Hard drives do tou have?
3. How do you want them to be configured?
4. What kind of array controller do you currently have?
5. What smart Start CD ver do you have?

It is help ful to clearly state what you wanted to accomplish with what you have in this server.
