Hi, I have an ich7r controller w/ 4 x 1TB disks RAID setup on it. The machine went down last night, and wouldn't start this morning. Looking at the controller config BIOS, there is no RAID volume listed. My 4 physical disks are listed, and the status all say 'offline member'. I'm not exactly sure what failed here. Does this sound like a bad RAID card? Or disk backplane? I have little experience w/ this controller, any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Quick update. After some more trial, I got 3 of 4 disks online and my raid volume shows up again as degraded, and says boot = yes. But it will not boot. It's running BSD, and at boot, it says invalid partition. No boot loader. Thanks for the help.
