I've recently installed a new server 7915-D2G with 5 x 600GB 6GBs disks as RAID5 + HS.
The server has only been running for a few days and backup was still not configured. The RAID controller seems to have failed. I have an issue logged with IBM who have suggested the faulty RAID I/F (M5110e). A new card is being shipped out overnight.
My worry is the data on the drives. From reading many forum posts re IBM's and OFFLINE RAID volumes I'm fearing the worst regarding my data. Has anyone seen this issue, and was the raid-set recoverable following the controller replacement?
