PE 2650, Perc3/Di, Container A is RAID1 and container B is RAID5.
last message in the logs:
Jul 21 02:31:40 unix kernel: aacraid: Host adapter reset request. SCSI
after that, while the system can do some things, there are lots of files
that are not available giving
?---------- ? ?
for ls -l.
Things like / are noted as read-only filesystem, the permissions for /root

So even rebooting is dangerous.
Container B seems OK and I have an external USB drive that is working fine
- it contains the snapshots so I have a backup of all the important stuff.
What is the best way to return this to a working and reliable box? I have
seen mention of replacing the raid card with a megaraid card. Will Dell
do this sort of thing under warranty? I have seen many reports of
problems with aacraid but so far it has been fine.
Is there anything I can do without rebooting?
