comment RAID-5 how can I guess how many disks was member?
Thanks for all! We figured out it was three disks, one of them had bad sectors. All data was recovered from two of the three of RAID-5. It is very consfusing what IBM ServeRAID manager stated about data space and parity space, and not providing exact info about how many disks should be. Btw, we used reclaime.com to restore the image which was a VMFS, which we extract by glandium.org/projects/vmfs-tools, then VMDK was mounted on Windows by official vmware software.

@TheCleaner Now we will try to clone the disks one-by-one and investigate those images by some Raid Recovery tools. The server is in two hours driving distance, so until my colleague arrive back, I just preparing. I am not brave enough to try force online without having a copy at least :)

@TheCleaner Now two drives says: OK, and one says: Rebuilding. But seems do nothing. According manual Rebuilding will start itself if hot-spare is ready. There were no hot spare, and we did not fire a command to rebuild. However the ServeRAID manager states this. Our assumption is system was running degraded, and now another disk made errors, and now faulted. We have not noticed as Windows Server was running in ESXi, so WinServ didn't even know it runs on ServeRAID, so no errors come up.

Well, two goals: I need evidence to report what happened, and get the consequences. Second, if it was three disks we can give a try of recovery software.

comment How can I list when was all my installed FreeBSD ports built?
1. the ls -Alt /var/db/pkg | grep '/$' | tail -n 20 gives me empty result, because grep '/$' matches zero lines. I greatly appreciate your answer. So if I mean well the folder dates in /var/db/pkg means the build dates of each package?
