Repairing mirror disks


I have a failed disk in one of my BL25p blades, I have inserted a new disk but it is not recognised as a replacement for the failed disk.
The system is asking for the disk on Port2 SCSI ID 1 to be replaced, the new drive is being detected as Port1 SCSI ID 1 instead. (Working disk is Port1 SCSI ID 0)
I have included a screen shot of the ACU for clarification. Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Repairing mirror disks

Take a Backup, and create a disaster recovery plan.

I've got an idea, but I'm not sure if it will work.
There is a way to break the mirror, i will search for the guide and post the link.

1. Upgrade the RAID FW.
2. Break mirror
3. create a new mirror.

I will read the guide, and check how the re-create the mirror.

Please, if it doesn't work, don't get angry with me.

Re: Repairing mirror disks

Here's the link.

You will have to use the ACU method, the manual won't work in your case.

I don't think the re-mirror operation will succed, you can try.
If not you can try using the expand and migrate options in the ACU.

Good luck
