I suspect I know the answer to this (namely, that there is no hope whatsoever), but thought I'd take the liberty of asking the question in the unlikely event there may be some hope, however remote it may be.
I have a server with an old LSI 8888ELP hardware raid card. It is connected to two external drive arrays, each holding 16 drives, each of which was configured as a RAID6 array. While servicing the server, a tool slipped out of my hand, hitting the power cord on one of the enclosures and of course the power went out on the unit. I plugged it back in and powered up the enclosure again. For good measure I also rebooted the server.
Unfortunately, when I go into MegaRAID Storage Manager, it shows all slots/drives as RED, with status "(Foreign) Unconfigured Bad" Right clicking any of them only gives the options to start locating the drive, stop locating the drive, and change to unconfigured good.
I was wondering if there is any hope of recovering any data off the array, whether using MegaRAID Storage Manager or something else. I'd even be happy recovering just a part of the data.
As am aside, I do understand the importance of backups - one was running at the time but a large amount of data had recently been copied to the array and it looks like only 30% was backed up at the time this happened.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
