    ISIS 5000 "(Foreign) Unconfigured Good" on 5 data drives

    ISIS 5000 version 4.7.11.16275, one unit, 16 x 2.1GB drives total.

    System was running and then without any configuration change, all users started getting read/write errors.

    Upon investigating, MegaRAID storage manager is listing drives 11-15 as (Foreign) Unconfigured Good.

    Is there a way to bring these 5 data disks back to Online state without loosing all the data on this RAID group?

    You can try this: ISIS 5000 shows multiple Foreign Disks. I don't know about the data. I suggest updating to latest version of ISIS and MegaRaid Storage Manager when you're done.

    Re: ISIS 5000 "(Foreign) Unconfigured Good" on 5 data drives

    I have tried this, but one of the five drives is in a "reduild pending" status, so the import fails.  I have tried pulling the drive and it then shows the drive missing, and then importing and it still fails.  Don't know how to get that drive out of a "rebuild pending" status.
