new disk - Waiting for rebuild status -

Hello,

Can someone please help me with the following problem. I replcaed a systemdisk (raid1) but the new disk does not completely rebuilds itself. It rebuilding for a few minutes but it stops and it`s getting a waiting for rebuild status.

I've read on the forum that several people expereince this problem. However I did everything I could think of but without succes:

- tried different disks.
- replaced the array controller, SCSI controller, even the complete motherboard.
- did an error check on the existing drive and repaired all sector erros.
- updated firmware/BIOS/controller/drivers/HP software (like ADU/ACU etc.)
- the needed reboots ofcourse

But it's all not working. Does anyone has another hint/thing to try?

Thank you all in advance!

Hi,

may be the new HD have some bad sectors and for this reason it's no possible to complete the rebuilding process?
have you checked the target disk for erros?

let me know.

bye.

Thanks for your reply;

Yes I did that as written in the first post, but maybe it was not clear: did an error check on the existing drive and repaired all sector erros.

The disk I'm replacing are new, I also tested a used one. I did a scan for bad sectors on the main disk & they are all repaired.

How about splitting and rebuilding the mirror?

here it is:

Make a backup, first.

Hope this helps.
