C600+/C220+ SATA RAID Controller keeps failing drives, I need some help resolving this.

Jump to solution

I have a server running an Intel C600+/C220+ SATA RAID Controller. It keeps marking drives as failed. I will replace the drive and rebuild the RAID and it runs fine for a little while and then fails again. At this point, I have replaced all of the drives at least once. I have swapped cables as well. This is for a production server for an SMB and I can't keep replacing drives. How do I resolve this issue?

Hi BScri,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Server Communities.

 

I was reviewing the information provided and I noticed you mentioned an Intel C600+/C220+ SATA RAID Controller.

 

Do you have by any chance the model of the RAID Controller?

 

Could you please so kind and provide to me with more details about your system such as Motherboard, HDD or SDD Models. Also, please provide me which software RAID are you using to check the status of the RAID Configuration.

 

Are you using a RAID BIOS or Software RAID?

 

I will be waiting for your information to proceed with the next step.

 

Regards,

Emeth,

I've attached a ZIP file that has snapshots of most of the info that you've requested. We are using RAID 5 and this controller is embedded on the motherboard (it's an Asus board, but I don't the exact model yet). This should be a hardware RAID. I've attached two screenshots of the Intel Rapid Storage application - one of the general screen (pic 1) and one of the help > about (pic2). Pic 3 is the details on the "failed" drive - all three drives are the same manufacturer and model. At this point, every one of these drives has been replaced at least once. Lastly, Pic4 is the Device Manager view and RAID controller driver details. Thank you very much for your help!

Santiago,

Unfortunately, I am not sure. Is there a way to tell? I did not install this server (it is a white box server) and the person that did is no longer with the company.
