  1. Hello ppl,

    Yesterday I had an odd situation.

    My file server, Windows 2008 R2 std, running over Hyper-V cluster, just got
    all disks as read-only. But not simply read-only, using diskpart the detail
    result was :

    DGC RAID 5 SCSI Disk Device
    Disk ID: 2820757C
    Type : SCSI
    Status : Online
    Path : 0
    Target : 0
    LUN ID : 0
    Location Path : UNAVAILABLE
    Current Read-only State : Yes
    Read-only : No
    Boot Disk : No
    Pagefile Disk : No
    Hibernation File Disk : No
    Crashdump Disk : No
    Clustered Disk : No

    Volume ### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info
    ---------- --- ----------- ----- ---------- ------- --------- --------
    Volume 3 E DFS NTFS Partition 1021 MB Healthy

    How do I get my disk to read-write access again ?

    This is giving me headache !

    Thanks for your time and sorry if this questions is stupid...

  2. There is also a read-only flag on the volume

    DISKPART> select volume X
    DISKPART> detail volume

    that should list the volume flags
