One of our Xserves was hung up today so I forced it off and restarted. The system has a RAID card and two 80GB drives mirrored. When the computer turned back on it flashed the folder question mark icon, it couldn't find a startup disk. Meanwhile the blue lights on the two drives were flashing. I inserted the OS DVD and it booted from that. Disk utility doesn't see the boot volume. RAID utility shows green lights for the two drives, but a yellow light for the volume and is currently Initializing.


Did I just lose my boot volume? Or is RAID Utility rebuilding the volume and it will come back as before (please)?
