I have a server with the board S5000PSLSASR, that is currently deployed. I checked the Raid Web Console, and it shows my array, but under Physical in lists 4 copies of the same bad drive, it says "Slot 0, SATA, 0 Bytes, Failed." on 4 drives. It is a raid 5 with 4 500gb drives.
Is anyone familiar enough with the console to tell me what's really going on? I don't want to restart and go into the raid setup, in case the server doesn't come back up. Can I just replace the drive in slot 0 while its on?
Also, does anyone know if the R at the end of my board's model number means refurbished? I thought this board was brand new when I bought it.
Thanks in advance!
I don't understand about "4 copies of the same bad drive". A screenshot would be very helpful.
Normally it's safe to replace the failed drive while the system is running, but it's always recommended to have a backup of your data.
The R at the end means "Refresh", which indicates support for Xeon 5200 and 5400 series. For more details, see http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-027912.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-027912.htm.
