raid crash

Unbelievable, but my raid system crashed again! Only a few days after the last incident, the array broke again, taking the W2k3 Virtual Machine down with it. Right after I fixed it in the morning, it broke down again in the evening. I already played with the thoughts that my raid controller broke, or some of the cables. But I was wrong. When I was testing wether the cables were connected correctly, I accidently touched the Gigabit Network card and almost burned my finger. It was at least 70°C! I quickly shut down the computer and replaced the old D-Link 528T with a Marvell Yukon. After that everything was working fine again. So if you consider buying a D-Link DGE-528T, DON’T! You should only use them if you need WOL with WOL-cable and won’t leave your computer turned on for longer than 10 hours.
