Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is a SQL Server error message and has nothing to do with the RAID arrays.

This error is because you backed up the database using a strip set technique where you specified more than one backup file in the origional backup database command, and you are trying to use only one of the backup files.

You need to specify all the members of the backup set when doing the restore.

This <a href=”http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256973″>MSKB Article</a> should give you some info.

    when I do a Restore labelonly from "xxx" the result is: MediaName = null FamilyCount = 2 FamilySequenceNumber = 2 MediaSequenceNumber = 1 MediaLabelPresent = 0 MediaDescription = null but I continue with the error when I try to restore. What I have to do to specify all the members of the backup set when doing the restore?

    You need to include the first member of the media family.
