    Matrix Storage Problem


      HELP !!!!!  I was running server 2003 x64 on a Intel s3000AH with 4 Drives as a Raid 5 Matrix Storage array, and the machine went down.  It would not boot up.  I installe Server 2008 on a seperate drive (with its own controller) and booted up, installed Matrix storage manager and tried to Re-Build the array.  It gets to about 6% then it tells me that the array is degraded with a Hard Drive Missing - However ALL the drives show Normal !.

      What is interesting is that that array was partitioned into two drives ( C + D).  the former D Drive is accesable with the C Drive not accesable!

      How do I rebuild the Array, or tell which drive is BAD

          Does it say which hard drive is missing?  If you have a hot-swap drive carrier, have you tried pulling the drive out for about twenty seconds, then re-inserting it?


          It may be that one of the drives keeps dropping out, so it seems online sometimes, but not others.
