I have a server using a 1000w PSU from Antec. My Raid 6 was becoming degraded and I tried to repair without success. So I have looked at the drives and they are all operational. I have now found that 1 of the 4 cables is successfully supplying power.
My question is:
- Does this sound like I have lost 3 of the 4 12v rails and with my trusty soldering Iron I maybe able to fix the problem OR
- Replace the thing with a new one
Note 1: The server will actually boot up and run fine, I just cannot use any HDD connected to the other modular plugs. Swapping the cables gives the same results, so I believe not a cable issue.
Note 2: Multimeter tests not performed at this stage.
