I was using RST 126.96.36.1994 without error on my Server 2008 R@ system, I then upgraded several days ago to Windows Server 2012 and since then I have been getting message about my RAID 0 working in DEGRADED mode, I have tried Resetting the failed disk several times and it then goes thorough a rebuild process and seems to work for severalmore hours before another failed DEGRADED message appears.
Now the crazy thing is that now all of a sudden when I take a look within the RST software screen, my failed disk is no longer appearing on PORT0 as before and now where it used to appear it says "Port Unknown", Status: Unknown. it seems to have disappeared.. But the reallt funny part is that now the failed disk is now appearing on PORT1 as Normal with an option to "Clear and Reset Disk" which I'm not sure if I should now push.
IS there something wrong with my disk, did it fail? should I be replacing it or do you think this is a software issue.. Any help would be greatly appreciated..
Here is a picture of what I'm shown below:
Thanks in advance..
What a ridiculous thing to say, you Can't downgrade from 2012 to 2008, Server 2012 went RTM back on Aug 15, as such Intel has had a head start on trying to offer support for the new windows server OS, Does this mean that there will be no intel RST support for server 2012? Am I better off to look for another solution? is there at least a beta I can try? as I cannot downgrade the OS, its not possible..
You have not even addressed any of my other questions, I am really surprised at the lack of support within your reply..
We've just bought 6 servers with ICH9R chipset and licences for Window Server 2012. Unfortunately when we use the RAID drivers to install Windows Server 2012 it shows the Mirrored Drives separately. The mirror was created inside the Controller before any OS interaction and as far as the chipset is aware it has a mirrored array.
We could really do with a work around or a driver ,
Intel really ought to get their act together on support for 2012. I am installing it at customer sites now. The AMD RaidXpert software works fine on their Raid chipset under Server 2012 - even in core mode. It can be accessed/managed remotely via a web browser and automatically sends emails on RAID status changes. It's way ahead of RST.
However, it is possible to manage RST on Server 2012 (even Core) using RAIDCFG32. Here's an example of a mirror config:
