  1. LSI MegaRaid - Image Drive from Failed RAID I had a power failure and my LSI MegaRaid 3 disk SAS RAID 0 failed. My attempts to recover the RAID have also failed. I plan to rebuild the array and go with RAID 5 and add another SAS disk. However, before I wipe the drives I would like to image each of them separately. I tried to boot up using a Linux live boot CD. I can boot up but I can't see my drives. I tried just one drive plugged in and booting but the drive can't be seen so I can't call the imaging command. I'm assuming since the MegaRaid SAS controller says that the virtual drive is bad, then it will never mount. I tried to find a SAS to USB cable online so I could just plug in each drive and image them but I can't find such a product. I thought maybe I could use the MegaRaid controller with one drive plugged in and set it as a new Raid 0 so I could get it to mount. However, it seems to want to call the initialize command and want to wipe the drive. Losing the Raid tables for the original Raid wouldn't be a problem, but I don't want the data to be erased. Any suggestions on how I could image each drive? Thanks.
  2. Hi, I just installed a Megaraid 9361-8i, and configured it for 8 drives - 6x1TB + 1x2TB + 1x500GB (I had it laying around). I also have connected to my computer a Samsung SSD, connected to port 0 on my MB, separate from the new controller. Before installing, my SSD had most of the space allocated to the drive, but after installing and configuring the new controller, I find my SSD now has HALF of the space DE-ALLOCATED? Is this because of a setting I chose during configuration of the Megaraid? I remember seeing something about SSD caching IIRC, but didn't expect to lose 1/2 my SSD for that. So, my question is, how do I get that allocation back? Windows 7 Pro is not letting me expand the SSD volume back to its original size, so I'm a little frustrated. Any suggestions on how to get that space back? Thanks in advance, Bjorn
  3. Hello, anyone using LSI MegaRAID SAS 9271-8i controller ? While controller is doing consistencycheck and I pauze it or reboot my server - controller is not booting anymore and all RAID data is lost. We already replaced our controller with RMA - no luck. If anyone tries to reproduce - be warned that data lost may occur!
