I had to replace a bad scsi drive. I pulled out the wrong drive. Turns out the drive I pulled out was the drive that all our data was being written to. At any rate, upon finding that out, I put the drive back in. There is no light on the drive. I know the drive is connected because when I go to the compaq utility, it does light up until I exit. This was about 3 hours ago, there is no light on the drive. And it appears in the utility that the status is OK. At this point, I'm afraid I've lost all our data. The drive is not showing in my computer, nor does it have a light indicating it has failed or that it is working. Could it be rebuilding itself in this state??? I did get a caution after all the errors that preceded it, "The Compaq Array . . . has valid data stored in Array Accelerator memory. The data will be written to the drives one the controller becomes idle." Also, there are two bad drives present, I havea larger drive that will replace both of them once the rebuild is done or I'll just need to purchase one more. Please advise. Please help. Thank you.
