Quantum Snap Server 2200

Quantum Snap Server 2200

Quantum Snap Server 2200

My Snap server model 2200 recently indicated a failed disk. Under this condition, the server will not allow me to format or rearrange the disks.  I had it set up for "mirror" to back up the data from one disk to the other.  I opened the server and booted each disk individually.  I was able to check and format each disk individually.  Thinking I had fooled it into repairing and formatting the disks, I restarted the server with both disks installed.  The server runs now as if it has two individual disks, which is another option when setting up the disk arrangement.  However, when I go to the disk utilities, I find the disks still set up for mirror and indicating that the backup disk has failed.  It will not allow me to change this arrangement, although I would like to get it back to a working mirror setup.

The server works fine otherwise.  I can save files to the two individual disks.  Any ideas out there??

While I don't have the answer to your solution, you may be able to find it here...  


There are about 24 pages of stuff regarding the snap servers...  I have the same issue that you are experiencing, but have ran into a greater problem...  maybe after I get that resolved, I can search for a solution to the broken mirror issue...


I look in the mirror and what do I see...

Hey...  found an answer for you...


Taken from that site..  (credit goes to original author)

http://(snapserver ip or name)/config/debug

type config devices reinit all

and let the system restart. It should bring the drives back to original state. I did this to remove a 'cracked raid' then try putting it back in a raid set
