After a disk failure, system goes in maintenance mode with the following reason:
"Filesystem server is crashing repeatedly in Maintenance Mode."
Dell PERC 9 controllers (H330, H730, H730P, and H830) introduced a feature called Rapid Rebuild that speeds up the time to rebuild failed drives in certain conditions.

In order to make the system operational, it's necessary to fix the filesystem:
Run a filesystem check with the following command

to check the scan status use this command
maintenance --filesystem --scan_status
Once the scan is completed, type the following command to check the scan report

If the scan fails, please contact Quest Support.
