I'm in trouble...
Server: HP Microserver N36L Storage: HP P212/256 with BBWC Drives: 4 WD 2 Tb
While expanding the RAID 5 array from 3 to 4 drives, the server rebooted itself. Expansion was at 76%.
Now at boot the P212 seems to hang on initializing. After some time screen resets and the server boots, but in the os (Windows Server 2008R2) the P212 has errors (error code 10) and it's not seen by the HP ACU.
Whats' going on? It's trying to complete the expansion? It's trying to make all over the expansion? It's simply stuck?
What should I do? I NEED the data on the array!
PS In the server BIOS, on the hd boot priority, the server still reports the array logical drive... maybe it's a good sign...
PPS I'm not at the server physical location, so I cannot tell if the drives in the array are being accessed (that would be the case if the controller it's redoing/completing the expansion process) or not right now.
