P2000 change vDisk spare to Global Spare

We have a P2000 G3 iSCSI SAN with several drives in a RAID 50 vDisk.  Originally, I configured it with (2) vDisk spare drives. 

 

Is it possible to change the vDisk spare to a Global Spare?

Re: P2000 change vDisk spare to Global Spare

You will have to remove the spare from vdisk spare and then add it into the global spare.

 

To remove a vdisk’s spares:
1. From SMU, in the Configuration View panel, right-click a vdisk and select Configuration > Manage Dedicated Spares. The main panel shows information about the selected vdisk, its spares, and all disks in the system. Existing spares are labeled SPARE.
2. Select spares to remove.
3. Click Modify Spares. If the task succeeds, the panel is updated.


To add to the system’s global spares
1. In the Configuration View panel, right-click the system and select Provisioning > Manage Global Spares. The main
panel shows information about available disks in the system. Existing spares are labeled GLOBAL SP.
• In the Disk Sets table, the number of white slots in the Disks field shows how many spares you can add.
• In the enclosure view or list, only existing global spares and suitable available disks are selectable.
2. Select spares to to add disks as spares.
3. Click Modify Spares. If the task succeeds, the panel is updated to show which disks are now global spares.
