I’m helping someone to restore or reinstall a WD Sentinel DX4000 in RAID 5 (4 x 2TB) which cannot initialize (error 0xD9).
Who can tell me the right direction?
The DX4000 displays.
- The RAID 5 parameters were discovered and the data could already be recovered.
- A XOR test shows several errors in the RAID 5, which should be corrected first.
- According to the S.M.A.R.T. values, all drives are healthy. (One with very few bad sectors was replaced by a clone of the same model.)
- Factory reinstall possible, but if possible not keeping the data and correcting the RAID 5 errors would be prefered.
Is there some procedure / tool to correct the RAID 5 errors?
In the documentation, I only found the way to hot replace a hard drive and reconstruct the RAID 5. But what about correction of errors accross existing drives?
What does the 0xD9 error exactly means?
Does the start fails because the system is searching for some DHCP connection ; so should I link the NAS to some router for the start to suceed?
How to reinstall or repair Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 essentials?
Did the DX4000 come with a Windows CD and should I ask the owner for it?
How do I access the DX4000 as it refuses to initialize ?
How do I access it from an other computer and can see Windows errors at start? :
just plugging in RJ45 wires in a router or do I need some client panel software?
Thank you very much for your help.
