ya, this may not be a hardware problem. we dont' know yet. when i posted this, my mind was fixed to hardware problem since this is on an old server...
i need to find out how to check array on this server:
Win 2000 SP4
IBM Netfinity 5000
2 of RAID 1 hard disks both are supposed to be mirrored.
from disk managetment, it sees C drive on both disks but no D drive. and it sees 2 extra disks which don't exist unless it thinks the missing D drive is there. these extra disks have state of 'offline' and 'missing', and labeled 'dymanic' and 'simple volume'. the volume is exactly same for both of them.
