Replacing a failed drive in a 7200

We have a failed drive in our 3par unit...

It looks like the drive of ours was brought offline on February 11th with a servicemag start command. Is there any reason to run the command again since its offline? What will a servicemag start command do to the drive now?

The magazine was successfully brought offline by a servicemag start command.
The command completed at Sun Feb 11 06:50:48 2018.
servicemag start -wait -pdid 51 – Succeeded

The info shows nothing on the drive when I do a showpd –space command

however when I do a showpd –c it shows some chunklets? But nothing in USED Failed or USED OK: Is this safe to remove and replace?

Re: Replacing a failed drive in a 7200

You have an auto servicemag start.  The next step is to replace the drive and then do "servicemag resume".

(Next time don't wait so long to replace.  :-)
