ml370 power cut now wont boot

got an ml370 with 6 disks in. 

 

had a power cut and machine wont boot. one of the disks says failed on startup.

 

i am not too clued up with servers as my boss is away.  i need a document that was on this machine

 

is there any way to get it booted back into server 2003 or can i extract off one of the drives another way

 

many thanks in advance

ok i took the disks out one by one and none say failure on boot but it gets as far as attempting to boot from hard drive c and just hangs.

thanks

How are the 6 disks setup (RAID5?)

If you have only one failed it should still run ok.


Maybe the OS (Windows?) got corrupted when the power went off.
Thats a good reason to run your server on a UPS at all times!

 

I'd be trying a Windows repair install off the CD...

thanks for the reply

 

not sure on the setup i am assuming it was raid5.  sounds to me like OS has been corrupted as welll.

 

and server was on a UPS - but that died after a few hours and we couldnt get to the building.

Doesn't your UPS signal the server to shutdown gracefully in those hours?
