I have a server with a potenially faulty 3ware 9650SE-8LPML. I can log in to the server but the interface keeps reseting causing the whole system to lock down for minutes.
My host suspects its the raid card causing the problems.
They dont have a 3ware 9650SE-8LPML on stock and now they are asking me if they can put in a 3ware SAS 9750-8i instead.
What it the potential risk of data loss? If it does not work can they put in a 3ware 9650SE-8LPML at a later date or will the data forever be corrupted?
The server is using Freebsd 7.3 and across the raid is also a ZFS cluster.
