replacing a raid 5 failure disk

Hi folks,

 

How do i replace a failure disk on my storage. I have a raid 5 with 3 HDDs and one is failing. So I removed it and inserted a brand new HDD of the same size and specs.

 

After rebooting the Smart Array 6400 did not claimed the new disk, now the system is running just with 2 of 3 disk. 

 

The server is HP DL 380 G5 running Oracle Linux;

The start up disk i used was the HP 8.60 and i cound´t see the RAID configuration i just succeed accessint the raid via pressing the S during the boot time so there it didn´t gave me lot of option like joint the new disk to the raid.

 

Please help.

Re: replacing a raid 5 failure disk

hi,

 

Where are installed the drives - in external storage attached to the server or they are in the server?

 

Can You please attach an ACU report here?

 

Thanks
