Array "Ready For Recovery" - but doesn't rebuild

Hi There,

 

I have a Smart Array 5300 with 4 disks in a RAID 5 config. One of the disks failed so I replaced it (hot swap) with a spare. The status on the Config Utility just goes to "Ready for Recovery" and the array doesn't rebuild. I've tried 4 disks now and the same thing happens with all of them.

 

The replacement disks were all part of old systems and have old RAID data on them but I thought that would just be over-written when I hot swapped them in.

 

ACU report attached.

 

Any ideas?

Did you try to rescan the bus using ACU?  You can click "Rescan" within the utility (though starting ACU should perform this automatically).

Yup. Re-scanned several times.

Hello,

 

Can you check how many read error do you have on your drives which are part of the array.
