Re: replacement drive s detected or previously failed drive s now appear to be operational

Hi,

 

if you press F1 your logical drive will be disabled. so only option that you have is to press F2 to continue.

 

"Select "F2" to accept data loss and to re-enable logical drive(s)"

 

Note: Data which is there in the cache and not been transfered back to disks will be lost.

 

also found an advisory please review :

Re: replacement drive s detected or previously failed drive s now appear to be operational

I have a similar problem with my DL380 G6 but when I press F2 nothing happens it just sits there and it does not move:

 

1779-Slot 1 Drive Array - Replacement drive(s) detected OR previously failed

drives(s) now appear to be operational: 

         Port 1E: Box   1:   Bays 3,7

Logical drive(s)  disabled dues to possible data loss.

Select  "F1" to continue with logical drive(s) disabled

Select "F2" to accept data loss and to re-enable logical drive(s)

(RESUME="F1 OR "F2" KEY)

 

When I press F2 it just stays here, any help would be greatly appreciated, I have 4 logical drives and only 1 is working, the other 3 ll of a sudden stopped working and all of the data is on these 3 logical drives.

 

Thanks for your guidance.

It depends.

The RAID is disabled because there was a problem. If the problem is solved and all disks are available again, you can safely resume the RAID, if let's says 2 disks of a RAID5 are missing or bad for any reason and you select resume, the data is lost.

 

So there is a possibility.


Hope this helps!
