I doubt they both died at the same time.

They probably don't use anything to monitor arrays or servers. Probably one died and nobody replaced it, and a while later the other died.

Pays to have backups.

no, both died at the same time. it was functioning yesterday, and now it is down. could have been the raid controller.

Well it definitely isn't a 1 in a billion chance. If the drives were from the same batch the chance of both failing is very good actually. This is why a lot of people buy their drives from different stores when making an array.

let me repeat. both drives were running yesterday. our teacher (the person in charge of keeping all the servers running) had to restart it because the ADC was being bogged down by students logging on. this morning it happened again and he went to restart it and the machine could not boot.
