RE: Server not responding to new hard drives dell poweredge r710 technome (IS/IT--Management) 30 Sep 16 20:20 Perhaps if you did not spare a few words to describe your configuration you might get an answer, not many of have a crystal ball; personally mine is out for re-calibration. With the infinitesimal info given, sound like you have a raid which is rebuilding, during a rebuild, the server would be very slow. ........................................

With a two drive failure, there's a good chance it doesn't have enough info to rebuild the drives. That depends a lot on how it was configured. You could try rebooting (if you haven't, but that could really break the RAID volume. Again, I'm assuming the drives were part of of a RAID volume.
