We have a HP StorageWorks server with hp Smart Array p212. It has 2 SAS array configurations.
Logical drive 1 wich is a RAID 1 configuration Logical drive 2 wich is a RAID 5 configuration One of the drives in the raid 5 configuration failed last week an was replace with a new drive of the same model while the machine was turned off.
When the machine was up again i started the rebuild action in the HP Array Configuration Utility. This was 4 days ago. I now see in the array configuration utility that all the drives are working and no errors remain.
But i can not access the data it used to contain. When i look at the windows drisk management I can see the drive but is in a RAW format. I have also rebooted the server and when booting windows it want to run a checkdisk on the drive. I have done this. It took somewere between 1 and 2 days to complete the checkdisk but at the end it stoped checking and froze.
This is our backup server so if possible I would like to restore the historical backup data. Could some one please advice me on what to do next.
