Yesterday drive 6 of my R8 array went bad. I replaced the drive and suddenly drives 3,4 and 5 are down. 3 and 5 are showing dead and 4 doesn't show up at all. I reseated drives, updated firmware. It doesn't seem likely that 3 drives would malfunction at the same time. 4 gives an "Invalid physical ID in the data buffer" error when I try to force it online.
This is everything I am working on right now. If there is anyway out of this I would be grateful for you help.
