Replacing Disk in P2000

Replacing Disk in P2000

According to the P2000 Log file, there is one disk recording disk errors in the log. I want to change the disk out before it fails. What is the correct procedure to replace a running disk in the P2000? The disk is a 600GB SAS drive. The vDisk is RAID 5. There are two global spares in the P2000. Thanks.

Just pull the disk.
Then one of the spares will take over.
When you replace the disk you need to assign the new disk as a spare.

Usually with HP servers the original spare will become the spare again once you have replaced the failed drive. So you'll see a second rebuild.
Is this different with HP san/nas hardware?

Yes.
On the msa over 1500 you need to do this. Also on the eva but you can specify a default disk group. Xp is warm swap. Lefthand or p4500 I don't know. But I Assume this is the same as in normal proliant like you said, as that's the underlying hardware.

Eva doesn't have spares. I meant for disk replacement :-)
