FAIL on 5 out of six drives: can't boot

System: lp2000r with NetRAID-1M.
RAID 5 has been working fine.
Six physical drives on one adapter.
Drive 0 is ONLINE
Drives 1-5 FAIL
Won't boot.
Using NetRAID Express to diagnose
All drives show good power.

What hardware malfunction or software would FAIL five drives at same time?
Would a REBUILD even work?

What's next step?

Thanks,

Correction: I do NOW have red fail lights on drives. This was not the case until I ran the NetRAID Express and checked the phyical disks under OBJECT MENU

Re: FAIL on 5 out of six drives: can't boot

Update; changed RAID card with spare: back to green drives but have configuration mismatch between drives and new NVRAM.

I need to make the new configuration match the correct one on the disks but a problem:

If I look at the disk status under OBJECT menu, I get three drives ONLINE and three READY with a consistent Virtual Drive set-up.

If I look at the phyical disks under the CONFIGURATION menu, I get FAIL indications.

Can I use the PHYSICAL menu status as TRUTH for what the physical disks are actually configure to and configure to that?

If I get it wrong, do I loose data?
