MSA 2000i SMU software How to rebuild Raid1

[ Edited ]

Hello we recently had a failure on our MSA 2000 in our RAID 1 array we have 2x 2TB SAS drives in RAID1 Config, one failed and was under warranty so replacement was fitted but when fitted it never copied back over from the other disk. 

 

it was all setup before i started by the previous network admin. 

 

When the new disk fitted it initially failed to initialize but then did after a short time not sure if this had an impact on the duplication process.

is there a way of manually starting the mirroring process from within the software so the RAID1 can be made active again?

Many Thanks

What is the status of the new disk? Is it "available"? So you need to make it a spare now.

Hope this helps!

Look in provisioning, spare management, you will see the disk as a possible spare, set the checkmark and apply.

Hope this helps!

It should start now automatically, check the details screen of the LUN (vdisk - volume).


Hope this helps!
