After a few power failures my NS4600 stopped working (i was able to ping it over the network, but file access didn't work, neither did its web interface). I followed the advice given in https://forum.promise.com/thread/ns4600-cannot-boot/ by switching it off, taking out the HDDs, then resetting it to factory defaults and putting the drives back in. But i was unable to order the RAID manager to recover the array. Instead of that it now sees two HDDs (bays 3 and 4) as parts of a 4-disk RAID10 array, and two other HDDS (bays 1 and 2) as "Free Disks".
The status of the RAID10 volume looks like this:
RAID Status Off line
Action Status Rebuilding
Background Activity Running
And the progress indicator is stuck at 1%. The only other active tabs in RAID management are "Create" and "Delete", and i want to do neither.
Is it possible to correctly recover from this state (assuming that the data on the disks is still intact - i have no way to verify that at the moment) with just NS4600 itself?
If not, would it be possible to take out the disks, put them somewhere else (would a normal PC suffice?) and recover the data (and then possibly wiping the disks and re-creating the array)?
