I have an Intel Matrix Storage controller, in the process of replacing the 3 drives the last one is Offline Member. I added a 4th drive it's also Offline Member. I tried formatting, removing partitions and they still come up Offline Members. HELP!
These are all 250GB SATA Seagates. The system is still running on 2 drives. I would like to save the Win2003 server Standard install with all our third party apps. Any Ideas?
OK, here it is "How to put a drive Online". a drive goes Offline when it's damaged OR it's been replaced with a drive from another array and the controller thinks it belongs in your array. So, the way to make it available is to take it out of the array. Using option 3 ‘Reset Hard Drives to Non-RAID’ in the ROM setup. Scarey! the last thing I would have thought of but, it lets you remove individual drives from an array in addition to removing the array it self.
