MSA1000 Rebuild failure volume needs recover

I have a old msa1000 SAN which may have a bad drive.
Slot 10 drive was showing a blinking arrow and no light for the green or amber disk.
The front LCD panel said Rebuild failure.
CLI showed Unit 1 Volume Status: Volume Needs Recover
All other units were status OK.

So I hot swapped the disk with a new drive, thinking it was a bad drive. Unit 1 started to recover but shortly went into volume status: Volume needs recover once again.

All of the other units are now showing Volume Needs Recover status also except Unit 2 which is in the process of "Volume Recovering"

I am new to this array and only using it for a short term project.

Why will Unit 1 not recover? What do I need to do with this Unit now?


CLI> show unit 1
