    Hello,

    I have a BIG problem here with a SCSI drive on our web server in our school.

    All of a sudden i keep getting Start Unit Request Failed at start up.

    and then when I try to verify the HD on the SCSI menu I receive an
    "UNEXPECTED SCSI COMMAND FAILURE" with above a SENSE KEY: "NOT READY".
    Like it says, it's not ready.

    now this is the secondary hard scsi disk, my primary bootup disk is fine, when i boot up windows, it boots up fine, but doesnt see the e: drive. in device manager though it is there and it says it is working properly.

    Do you think it could be the hard disk has failed. only last week on this same server the power supply went. and we changed the power supply. could thsi be related?


    Thanks

    Ranj

    Try reseating the connectors to the drive. You might swap the power connector between the two drives. Maybe something was bumped when the power supply was removed. If that doesn't work then probably the drive has failed. I take it that the secondary drive is on the same cable as the primary one and it was working ok before the supply went?
