Compaq Proliant 850R Problems

Compaq Proliant 850R Problems

I am experiencing problems with a Proliant 850R server which has appeared out of nowhere. Inside it has two SCSI 2.1GB Hard Drives which are mirrored.
This machine has been working for around one year until one day it was booting up and saying Invalid System Disk.
When I unplug one of the drives it boots up fine on either drive.....so the mirroring was working but as soon as I plug them both in together the machine boots and says that it cannot find any drives on the SCSI Array????

Am I missing something here????

Hy Paul
you miss impotant information:is your mirror HW or SW.Did you use ARU on smart start or software mirroring.if it's software do next:if you dont have RDiSK or saved mirror configuration in windisk than reinstall system.If you used ARU try to reinstall whole machine trough smart start.
it's not much but hope it will help.
