    Intel RST Messages Meaning


      Intel RST gives me messages that an unknown disk on unknown port was removed, then tells me that a disk on controller 0, port 0 has been added. I do not have the exact wording, because the messages go away too fast. They do not seem to be warnings and no errors are reported. Can someone tell me exactly what this means? Is the hard drive starting to fail? I can open RST after I get the messages, and the hard drive seems to be OK. This drive is a SATA 2TB internal hard drive. There is an SSD drive (system drive) on port 1 of controller 0.


      Also, I tried to set up e-mail notifications mainly to get the exact messages and to see if this problem was occurring at time when I'm not at the computer. However the test message always fails. It does not give a reason, just says it failed. I have double checked the settings and they are all correct. My SMTP requires port 465. I also tried port 25 and that resulted in "unable to connect". I would think that the SMTP server would require a password, wouldn't it? Yet there's no place to enter that on the form. Is there no other way to have this thing save all messages somewhere?

          Hello HenriettaD, thanks for contacting us through the Intel Communities.

          I would need to get additional information on this issue. You could try  taking a picture or a video when the error occurs, and attach it to your reply

          When you choose the reply option, there is an option named “Use advanced editor” option on top of the box. If you click on it, you will be able to attach a document.

          Please let me know which is the model number of your system and the RST version you are using?

            OK, I will try to get a picture next time it does it.


            As far as the model number I don't know of one. The system was put together by my brother. RST is 3.0,0,2003. I did do a system report with RST if that helps:

              HenriettaD, would you please try installing the latest version of the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology software?

              You will be able to find it at the following link https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=23496&ProdId=2101&lang=eng&OSVersion=%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09&DownloadType=


              If you are still getting the same message after the installation of version 12.9, the issue could be related to the RAID structure and it could possible that there is a problem with one of the hard drives.

              I would recommend you to back up all your data.
