My script looked like this:
Fail HS drives:
set drive 2,11 operationalState=failed;
set drive 2,12 operationalState=failed;
set drive 0,11 operationalState=failed;
set drive 0,12 operationalState=failed;
To revive the array:
revive drive 2,7;
revive drive 2,1;
revive drive 2,3;
start drive 2,4 reconstruct;
Revive Hot spares:
revive drive 2,11;
revive drive 2,12;
revive drive 0,11;
revive drive 0,12;
- the numbers in the brackets represents Enclosure#,Drive#
I am also not sure how he discovered which drive to start the reconstruction of the array on, or which drives he found to revive, or how to know it was only those 3 as the system appeared to say 7 disks were missing (2,1-2,7). if anyone knows of a guide to teach me how to read these IBM ds3000 logs I would be greatly appreciative.

Re: Failed Logical Drive - Drive Failure Status: Failed - incomplete array2012-10-21T17:56:35ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.hi all,
i have the same problem (failed -incomplete array ) i have logical drive called Database consists of 3 H.D Raid 5 this logical drive failed and the luns can not seen by Exchange server , first the hard disk in slot 2 in enclosure 0 appear defunct the array stile working for one days then appear this error with red colour , kindly check the attach logs .
please if there is procedure to do to revive the defunct disk and get back the logical drive to it is status optimal ?,take in consideration no global hot spare disk
please if there is a specially script to run to this array and how to run (method of running )?
the status no this message appear in complete array and the disk in slot 2 in enclosur 0 orange led and no logical drive attach to exchange server
please your quick response is highly appreciated (urgent case )
you can send the solution on my mail

In analyzing hardware failures and in particular the different modes of hard disk failure I came to the conclusion that some "failures" may be temporarily recoverable.
I don't fully understand the logic by which the DS controller deems a drive to be "failed" and takes an Array offline but it might be some performance data like SMART data that momentarily exceeded a triggering threshold.
You may be able to use the "Revive" function to restart a failed drive, bring the array back online long enough to reconstruct on a Hot Spare (assuming you lost 2 disks on a RAID 5) or at least to be able to copy out files.
The message given by the IBM DS Manager GUI console is a bit misleading.
In some circumstances you might have more luck cooling the system a few degrees by putting a fan or blowing an air conditioner onto the system - an old trick from the PC world
No promises but it may be possible to bring the failed Array online long enough to copy out critical files and could save you an enormous amount of stress and work.Updated on 2019-07-02T16:47:55Z at 2019-07-02T16:47:55Z by anthonymaw
