VA7110 disk replacement ... help, Plz!!

Hello everyone.
I replaced a faulty disk from VA7110 but automatic rebuilding process not woking.
Auto rebuild, auto format, auto include are ON.
Inserted disk is used one from somewhere else..

The disk status is as follows:
Disk at JA0/D8:
Status:_______________________________Good
Disk State:___________________________Previously used ... (I can't remember details..)
Vendor ID:____________________________HP 73.4G
Product ID:___________________________ST373405FC
Product Revision:_____________________0005
Data Capacity:________________________66.757 GB (140000000 blocks)
Block Length:_________________________520 bytes
Address:______________________________7
Node WWN:_____________________________200000186224030f
Initialize State:_____________________Ready
Redundancy Group:_____________________65536
Volume Set Serial Number:_____________111DC488111DC5CC
Serial Number:________________________3KT5ELBN0000
Firmware Revision:____________________HP09
Recovery Maps are on this disk.
Space is reserved on this disk for subsystem metadata and may be a map disk.

Newly inserted disk is already formated in 520 bytes.
But Redundancy Group is 65536 and Volume Set Serial Number is different from other disks!!!!

I couldn't run the commandviewSDM GUI tool,
"launcher" failed to start with java exception errors.

How can I correct this problem?
Can I use "armrbld -r" command?

Please help...

Thanks.

Re: VA7110 disk replacement ... help, Plz!!

"Previously used" - this disk was already in another VA.

You have to include in manually. Use "cvui".

Hope this helps!

Re: VA7110 disk replacement ... help, Plz!!

Since the disk was used previously in an another VA, it will have it's signature on it. Hence it can't get included even auto include is ON.

You can include the disk by running command
# armcfg -D JA0/D8 -a

Thanks for your responses...very helpful.
Now I have one more question. ^^

In above situation, if I

<1> remove old(failed) disk in disk slot 8(JA0/D8)and leave the slot empty,

<2> insert a new disk to another slot(previously empty) and

<3> include the disk to Redundancy Group (# armcfg -a),

then new disk will replace the old, failed disk?

Thanks..
Torsten.

I see no reason why to insert the new disk into another slot.

Hope this helps!
