    I know this is a very novice question but I am stuck here with no IT group to help. We have windows 2003 Server and a drive has failed in the RAID. How do I find out which one?

    before attempting to find the failed raid drive in an array
    i would VERY STRONGLY SUGGEST (if not demand) that you
    1) a full backup on all critical data, verify the ability to restore on another system
    2) call the hardware vendor and have them send a rep to do the failed drive change

    this is from seeing other people with little HW experience try to change raid drives

    I wish I could call in the hardware guy..... it is me. Any idea how to find the bad HDD?

    By any chance is this an external drive? If so, there should be a light to indicate a problem. Perhaps a red light, an X, or maybe a missing/blinking light.

    i mean call the vendor support rep, do not touch the hw
    pay what ever the charge is for some one to come out and replace it
