Uhm, no. the machine I am talking about now has the hardware repaired,
by putting in a new raid kit.
Moving it to another server (I don't have another 2850, I have a few
more 2950's though)( would make much sense I think.
The filesystem is 'corrupted' so moving the disks doesn't help much there?

Hmm, I'd have to look. I have enough room around to move all the data to.

I posted what was in /dev/mapper a few msgs back.
question: since I have a broken filesystem, does it even make sense
to make a disk image of it? or do you mean just for backup? (that if I
break it, I still have the broken stuff I started with?)
