  • Physically Power on the appliance - During power up you will see a prompt on the screen “Adaptec Raid Controller Configuration Utility” press CTRL-A to invoke the utility ok
  • At the diagnostics screen select “Disk Utilities”
  • Select #0 (which is the first hard drive)
  • Select verify “Verify disk media”  (the drive scan will start - runtime is approx 1 hour and 10 minutes)
  • When the first drive has successfully completed go back and run the drive scan on #1 (which is the second hard drive)
  • IF both hard drives pass the Verify Disk media tests, you will then want to check the “array configuration status”
  • From the Adaptec Raid Controller Diagnostics main screen select “array configuration utility”
  • Select “Manage Arrays”
  • Selet 00 mirror = enter
