It sounds like there may either be a problem with the RAID controller [configuration] or, though unlikely a hardware failure. You'd need to check the RAID controller BIOS to see if there's a hard disk drive problem or RAID configuration problem. Also check RAID controller is damaged as disks are not recognized at all.

Rebuild the Raid and reimage the appliances.
