Another non-raid question

We have an older server vintage 2010 with Intel Matrix Storage Manager 7.5. It was configured with RAID1. One of the drives failed. We put in a new drive and started a rebuild but that failed, the computer died. I cannot boot it with the new drive in place. The new drive is now marked as non-raid in the Matrix Storage Manager. If I put the failed drive back in the computer will boot into Windows, sometimes.

How can I rebuild this array?

Thanks

Hi BarryH,

 

 

I understand you have a server with RAID degraded and you need to rebuild the array after changing the drive. Let me help you on this matter.

I would like to have additional information about your system configuration. Please run the following utility and attach the results.

Hi Allan,

Unfortunately that utility would not run on the machine. It is an old machine running Windows XP with a very critical legacy application on it. I did get the machine to go into rebuild the array with a new HD but after a couple minutes one of the disk icons flashed red and the machine rebooted itself. This old machine is running Matrix Storage manager 7.5. Do you have any sugggestions?

Thanks,

Barry

Hi BarryH,

 

 

Thanks for the update. I understand.

 

A RAID 1 volume can be reset as Non-Raid since the structure seems to be out of sync.

 

After selecting drives as Non-RAID, you can recreate the array.

But your data *will* be gone. Make sure you have a backup before you do any of this...
