Make CBL your RAID Response Team

RAID technology combines physical hard disks into a single logical unit either by using unique hardware or software thereby offering redundancy and increasing data availability. However, RAID configurations are typically complex and when a RAID system does fail, it can threaten a large amount of critical data and put your business at extreme risk.

Common RAID failures include:
  • Multiple disk failure
  • RAID Controller Malfunction
  • Loss of RAID configuration settings
  • RAID rebuild error or volume reconstruction problem
  • Inadvertent reconfiguration of RAID volume
  • Missing RAID Volumes
  • Loss of RAID disk(s) access after system or application upgrade
  • Incorrect replacement of good disk element belonging to a working raid volume

  • SCSI
  • PCMCIA
  • iSCSI
  • SATA II/2.0

What you should do right now

Whatever the cause of your hardware failure and data loss, this is what you should do right now:

  • Do not panic.
  • If a drive is making unusual mechanical noises, turn it off immediately and get assistance.
  • Do not replace the failed drive with a drive that was part of a previous RAID system.
  • Have a valid backup before making hardware or software changes.
  • Try to restore the backup to secondary system rather than the failed system.
  • Label the drives with their position in a RAID array.
  • Do not run volume repair utilities on suspected bad drives.
  • Do not run defragmenter utilities on suspected bad drives.
  • Do not attempt to repair the failed device.
