I have read thru google and on this community to find the CORRECT steps in replacing a faulty drive in a RAID config and have been rather unsuccessful.
Any help on the correct steps to follow would be of great help.
One of the drives in a 4 Drive RAID setup when faulty and Matrix Storage Console advised the replacement.
I removed the 1X 320GB drive and replaced it with a 500GB as no 320gb are available.
The RAID Drive has been partitioned into 2 drives Boot C: and Data E:
I booted the machine,started the rebuild and the process finished after 8 hours with version 7.5 of the matrix storage console.
Most server services are fine as they reside on the boot drive being C:, The E: drive with all the backup information does not even show up as drive in windows explorer.
What are the steps to follow in such a environment?
The only option i could find was a upgrade to use full space option which selected and now the RAID is migrating to this setup. Was this the right choice?
The problem thickens. Like always!
The DATA e: is a stripping drive... oops !
So how do i kinda rollback to a state where i can put back the "failing" drive, try and backup the E: which was supposed to be the backup drive to a NAS??
Any whizz kids out there on RAID!
