Good Day everyone.

Currently this sever is having some technical difficulties to say the least. At first we received a trap stating that one of the HDDs have failed. After replacing the hard disk we now ahve reports that the logical drive 2 (RAID 5) is failing. After replacing the array card the problem persisted. We have now swapped out the system board and the problem remains. Two questions. What does Logical Drive 2 failure mean ? Also, any idea what the problem might be ?

logical drive usually refers to a volume/partition on the drive/drive array

drive size and manufacturer?
hardware or software raid [just checking to be sure even though you mention changing a raid card]?
Type of drive?
What do you see for volumes in Disk Management?

HP proliant server. I am going to guess its the standard scsi drivers that come with it. To be honest, Im not in front of the server so I cant give you an accurate assessment.

In disk management, it shows all drives/partitions as healthy. Even did the HP array diagnostic tool which showed that there was a problem with the drives. Thats just not the case as all the drives are new plus the RAID card has been changed.

Disk Management:
how many drives and their sizes in disk management?
how many partitions on these drives?

Raid Management:
how many drives and their sizes?
which of the disks did you replace?
when you replaced the failed drive did you rebuild the raid array?

BTW that message of logical drive two failure had nothing to do with the raid card or the mainboard. It only pertained to the drive in the array.

I am assuming this is a three disk raid array and you have no hot spare?
