MSA2312fc - cannot expand Vdisk

Hi,

We had an issue with an MSA2312fc where one of the disks in the enclosure went into 'LEFTOVR' state after a (single) PSU failure. Metadata on the disk was cleared, but now it cannot be added to the original Vdisk again. The Vdisk (Raid10) remains in degraded state and the 'expand Vdisk' button remains greyed out when I try to add the disk to the Vdisk again.

When I go to the provisioning tab and try to add the disk to another (Raid5) Vdisk, the 'expand' button works.

I am tempted to try metadata scrub on the Raid10 volume and see if I can expand the Vdisk after metadatascrub, but since the Vdisk is in degraded state I would like to keep this as a last resort solution (if it is even recommendable at all??).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Problem already solved, had to replace another broken PSU before it started rebuilding...
