    HELP! SAN no one can see the drives

    Help we have a SAN but the drives have triangle and a power symbol, I think its runing a scrub why is this happening and should this stop people from seeing/ connecting the drives? First it was just 1 drive not all 3 have started.

    If the array is doing an administrative task it may be slowing drive access down enough for windows to time out any access requests.

    I had the same problem on my last SAN when one of the drives went. It was so busy rebuilding the array on to one of the hot spares that access was slowed down to a crawl and quiet a very people had access problems.

    Then again it was a RAID-50 of 7200rpm SATA drives so I couldn't have expected too much from it

    Restarted the switch, the server could see the SAN but not the network. And according to HP itís normal for the SAN to always do scrub
