I have a customer who called us with a failed server. I believe the issue is either the motherboard or the power supply (This happened after a power outage). The server is an old 2008 server which they do not want to replace. They just want the data.
The server appears to have been in a raid with a dell raid controller.
They have no details on the type of raid configuration, as the person who managed it left years ago.
The server had 3 drives in it.
250 GB with 4 partitions. A 41MB fat 32 partition, a 16GB partition 2 labeled ddf_raid_member, a 64gb ddf_raid_member, a 419gb extended partition, and 419gb free space. Not sure how this is possible as it is labeled a 250GB drive.
250 GB of a single partition. Unbuntu says it is a DDF_RAID_MEMBER, but windows says its unallocated space when hooked up via sata adapter
Appears to be a copy of disk 1. All same names and sizes.
My question is - Is there a way to view/recover this data without having to order a new motherboard and power supply for the server?
I cloned one of the drives and tried to do a recover my fails scan but only found a few thousand LOST_FILE_EXEs.
The server is a dell poweredge older model I believe 2950.
dell raid controller but no other markings I can tell.
The issue shows
e122A and e1224
power voltage issues the dell site says.
