Recently attempted to repair a customer's RAID (Adaptec 2410SA card 4x SATA) set as RAID 1+0 reporting RAID failure, disks looked good. Couldn't boot from the Adaptec CD on site, couldn't download a new CD from vendor (required entering of card serial number which was declined - still in discussion with vendor as they claim the card does not exist), couldn't boot from SystemRescueCD (didn't see RAID at all). Time pressures, so resorted to a rebuild and recovery from tape. What steps can I take next time to do things better? Are there any simulators that I can practice on? Is there a one-and-all RAID repair disk? Pointers appreciated.

Software/Hardware used:
adaptec 2410sa card 4x sata

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

What happened to the RAID that you needed a disk to repair it? If a single disk failed, replacing the disk with a new disk should have done the trick. The RAID card should have rebuild the array to the new disk automatically.
