I have a 10.6.8 mini server with the 2 drives mirrored. The server recently went down and disk utility is now showing the raid as degraded.


When I look at the raid volume it shows:


499.76GB "server HD" - Mirrored RAID set               - Degraded


   499.76GB - RAD Slice (disk1s2) 


   RAID Slice (2E8 ........)                       - Missing slice


   499.76GB - RAID Slice (disk0s2)



So it shows both slices (both show SMART verified) and a missing slice.


Is it degraded (it says so) but which drive has the problem? Both drives appear to be good (SMART verified) the machine is working but degraded with 2 drives?




Can anyone shed any light on this?


Many thanks



Mac mini (Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), OS X Server 10.6.8
