Our system administrators have identified an issue with one of our mail arrays related to a hardware failure of one storage member in the SAN.
A drive failure occurred on a member of the dmail02 storage group. The member attempted to initiate a RAID rebuild, which was unsuccessful and the storage member removed itself from the storage group. RAID refers to “redundant array of independent disks”, a technology that allows us to achieve high levels of storage reliability from our server drives. It does this by arranging the devices into an array. Simplified, this means they act like one large hard drive, but if one drive dies, there is enough data stored on the rest to recreate the lost data once the broken hard drive is replaced with a new one.
The server had to be taken offline and solutions are currently being investigated.
