Promise VTRAK

Post by dajuice » Thu Aug 04, 2011 3:02 pm

Does anyone have any technical details on how the RAID on the VTRAK m500 is arranged? We had a multiple drive failure and even after sending the drives for data recovery my arrays do not come online. I have 14x1TB drives in single Disk Array with 7 logical RAID 5 arrays across them. I am now imaging all 14 drives in hopes that i can build the array virtually with R-Studio to recover the data. The data on the logicals is either NTFS or VMFS

Data recovery firms have quoted approx $20,000 - $40,000 to recover this system and i need to make some attempts to get it done cost effectively first.

After the failed drive recovery i should be OK to bring up the array in critical with only 1 drive dead but its not co-operating.

Any help is appreciated on how i can rebuild this in Rstudio.

Well, RAID vendors are very reluctant to reveal their default settings, devil knows why.
Usually, I recommend creating another RAID with default parameters and look at them in the RAID management console, but I'm not sure it's possible for this case.
