I just upgraded from the latest version of Intel Storage Matrix Manager to Intel RST v10.1.0.1008. I would check what version of Intel Storage Matrix Manager I upgraded from, but the driver
download portion of the Intel web site is not responding right now.
After I upgraded, the system tray icon stated that the Intel RST service failed to start. I changed it from Automatic (delay) to Automatic, per what had been an issue with Intel RST v9.x on my other PC, and rebooted.
That did nothing. Once again, the system tray icon stated that the Intel RST service failed to start. I tried to manually start the Intel RST service, but it failed to start again.
I looked around online and did not find anything helpful. Most of the material references the Automatic (delay) from Intel RST v9.x rather than the Intel RST service not starting when manually triggered.
For reference, I am running a RAID 1 array on a Gigabyte motherboard with the Intel ICH9R chipset. It is mirroring two 250GB EIDE HDDs.
1) Does anyone have any suggestions for fixing this?
2) I cannot view the status of the RAID 1 array in MS Windows 7, though the RAID BIOS indicate everything is still working. However, I am paranoid. Is the RAID 1 array really still synchronized and functioning despite the Intel RST service failing?
