This answer is nothing I did not know, I was relying upon an expert to tell me the next step forward. The drives are now online, with no media errors etc, so how will I recover the data ? any recommended software ? IF the two discs out of 3 are broken, not convinced, then how can I get at the data ?
Hi,My name isXXXXX shall assist you with your problem.From conversation, i have seen you forced disks to online and can see the logical drive.But could you tell me the status of Raid array(logical drive)?(Is it on degraded or optimal state)If logical drive is good to read, you can retrieve data using offline method. Since server has raid controller, normal softwares doesn't work.What we can do is you may use any Linux Live disk which loads from CD/DVD drive. Most Linux versions has inbuilt raid controller driver on it. So it would detect your controller and thus logical drive. I recommend Ubuntu. If you may have other of-course you can use yours.Procedure:1: Load linux from disk2: On linux simply use file explorer, it would show our logical drive and hence data on it
3: Connect external storage device and move data to safe placeLet me know the statusThanks
