642 controller with msa30 drive cage


I have a dl580 with the above controller and cage. One RAID5 drive failed in cage and I replaced but it won't rebuild automatically.
It is in "interim recovery mode" and I can't figure out how to make it recover.
Can anyone help?

MSA30 already configured RAID5 with 642 Array controller, and failed 1 disk, you have no business without disk replacing.
It will be recover automatically.

Did you configm that the controler "see's" the new drive? Does it appear in teh ACU as an un-used drive?

Do you have a Hot Spare drive configured for the existing array?

Have you tried re-seating the drive?
