I’m trying to figure out what exactly I should do in order to get this RAID repair completed. I actually got lucky because of the fact that this raid server is not actually used for really intensive corporate purposes. I think I would probably go crazy there was the exchange server, because management would be all over me trying to get it repaired yesterday. But, because I don’t really have very much experience in the realm, I think that I’ll probably have to call a raid data recovery company in order to get this going. In the meantime, I’ll be running a backup raid five server and the hopes is that it will be good enough for the purposes intended. I’m sure it will, because these raid five servers tend to be very robust and usable when they’re new. This is a backup server that is never been used before, so it shouldn’t be a problem to use for a week while the raid is getting repaired.
Exchange Recovery Woes
I’m sure that it’s a lot tougher than I think to get an effective Exchange recovery completed within a couple of days. I know that the company that I talk to claim that they could do it, but I’m not 100% sure that they can. Still, you have to give them the respect of the fact that they claim to be able to recover raid servers within 24 hours. In cases where they actually have to rebuild the hard disk one by one, that is quite a claim that I almost wonder about. Still, after talking to a few of my colleagues, I recognize that these are probably the best raid data recovery guys in the industry. And that is not exactly an easy thing to be. So in the meantime I just have to listen to my manager complained about the fact that he can’t get access to any of the e-mails. It’s a bother, but I’ve heard of it all before.
