@Joe or @akosiaris since this systems is using software raid there is nothing showing in hardware log which disk is bad and the system diagnostic came up with no error. Can you please pull up at the OS level a log that can help me determinate which disk is bad so i can submit it to Dell? Or is this another bug (false alert)


No this is not a false alarm. One of the 2 disks has indeed failed and it seems so badly that the system can not even probe it anymore. What I could do is find out the serial number of the non broken disk. That would be WD-WMAYP0E3RCZJ. The broken disk should be the other one.

Call Dell, they said that the server part warranty has expired so i have some spare 500G SATA disks on site that i used for the system.

systems is back up.

I 've added the disk to the RAID array. For those interested the commands where

dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/dev/sdb bs=512 count=1 # (copy the MBR from the first disk)
fdisk /dev/sdb # (w, quit. I just used fdisk as a quick alternative to partprobe/kpartx)
mdadm /dev/md0 -a /dev/sdb1
mdadm /dev/md1 -a /dev/sdb2

md0 has already resynced, md1 is resyncing

I am resolving this. @Papaul Thanks for handling it!
