VA7100 Disk replacement

Hi,
We have one VA 7100, one of its disks got failed and I replaced it. But I don't know how to check, is it working fine or not. I just unplugged the def. HDD and fixed the new HDD .Is there any command to run for including this disk in VA logical units and am not aware from which logical units it got failed.
Here am attaching the logs after replacing the disk.
Please help me...

Re: VA7100 Disk replacement

What is the overall status of the array? Since the disk shows to be previously used you will probably have to manually "include" it. This can be done from the CommandView GUI or from the command line.

An 'armcfg -D M/D5 -a ' may do it. I can't recall exactly. You may want to check the armcfg man page yourself.

Re: VA7100 Disk replacement

Hi,

your M/D5 disk is not yet included.
Use commandview (cvui or GUI) to include the disk.

Check the status with

armdsp -a array_alias

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
