    I have a problem.

    Ater a power outage I have been having problems with a volume/disks within that volume.

    Basic setup win2003 server, raid card, 2 arrays, 1st 2 disks as a mirror containing os has been working fine. The second, 4 disks in a raid 5 array have been either one , two or all 4 having red lights come up with error. Usually a reboot the drives are accessable again for some time. Note, it is not the same drives that fail.

    Is it the raid cointroller failing or the drives?

    Would sound like the controller to me tbh, even though there was a power outage i wouldn't imagine it'd render all 4 drives useless, unless you've been very very unlucky
