IBM Netfinity 7000 M10

IBM Netfinity 7000 M10


I am running the above stated server.  The server is not the problem at all, the problem is that I am also running an IBM mass media device.  This device holds 10 scsi hdd's.  On a few ocassions I have experienced hdd failures.  Normally that would mean setting the hdds as defunct and replacing them.  I did this on those ocassions and took the same hard drives and reinisialized them.....

The most recent problem I had was that 2 hdds failed at once and took my array channel down...I lost everything.  Now people tell me that scsi hdds are supposed to "work forever" and that 2 hdds within the same array is almost impossible....expecially as it happened. These are older 9.1gb hdds.
Does anybody know how I go about testing the device to see if its in fact faulty...

I forgot to mention that the server does have a card in it.......so this is not a software array.

If further information is needed please let me know....I'm rather new with this.

I think you'd get better results if you posted in different IBM category .... good luck.
