we've a 7137 raid array. worked fine for many years.
took it down and moved to another machine after it was unplugged for a
on power on the 7137 said 3 disks were not disks it expected.
compared the serial numbers of the disks vs what was in 7137 and
serial numbers were close but two had 8 in place of 6 and one had
3 leading digits on the disk not in the disk serial number in the 7137
flaky and old NVRAM i thought. whilst attempting to do
something/anything to get this box going again (attempt to replace disk
or initialize won't go as the error indicated the box is locked due to
more than one disk being missing) suddenly one of the disk serial
numbers now matched!! let it sit overnight to see if one more would
match but no joy.
anyone know of a way to re-initialize a 7137 in such a state??
