    Intel RST (RAID5) + S.M.A.R.T. error and failed drive = :-(

    Jermays

      I have a Raid5 array that has a volume reported in a 'failed' state. One of the drives in the array completely failed and another reports a S.M.A.R.T. error. There's no way to disable SMART reporting in the bios (S3000AH motherboard)

       

      Two questions:

      1) When I reset the drive with the SMART error to healthy, the volume shows as failed.  Is there a way configure Intel RST to ignore the SMART errors?

       

      2) Resetting the drive to healthy doesn't initiate a rebuild of the array onto a new spare drive.  Is there a way to force a rebuild?

       

      My goal, of course, is to not lose any data. That means I need to either get the volume into a healthy state so I can move the data, or rebuild the drive with the SMART error.

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
