An above mentioned server was taken out of storage after 3 years. (storage was proper - sealed packaging&moisture absorbers)
[strong][/strong]Does not start: 2 of 5 raid disks show "failed", both in RAID BIOS and LED's on the front panel.
I tried swapping 2 failed drives with 2 good ones in other slots. I got
all 5 occupied slots show green "ok" LED's. But, BIOS utility still
show same 2 slots as "failed".
can it be RAID controller's fault? / i got 2 drives gone dead on shelf in airtight package? / i am missing something simple? / something else?
