Have setup a raid1. Working fine for the last 2weeks. This morning server refused to boot. Did Carl+I on boot up and noticed that raid state is showing as. " Initialise ". Does not seem to be any activity on raid drives. No access to drives in Carl+I mode
Any suggestions ? Should I leave and see if initialise eventually change to. " Normal "
Thanks in advance
Thanks for contacting the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology enterprise (Intel® RSTe) support forum, in regards to the situation that you're mentioning the best option at this moment will be to let your equipment try to Initialize the RAID, so it'll search for errors on the array and repair them in the cases that's possible.
We'll recommend you also to test the disks (if possible) and check their SMART status to ensure that the disks are in good condition and they're not causing the RAID to fail.
