My first question is, ¿did you wait the apropiate time so the controller finish the RAID building/rebuilding after your tests?

Can you post the output of:

hpacucli
=> ctrl all show config detail

¿Before and after your test? Is the system able to boot when you receive the error message or it gets corrupted? At which point do you have those messages?

Shalom,

Boot the system.

There is a console prompt for the smart array controller. The key is probably f8

An interface comes up that lets you change hardware raid.

Have a plan though, if the system is already running you may need to reinstall the OS.
