Re: Does HP Smart array p400i supports global hot spare?


In the quickspec you can find this information


In the Availability section of the standard features

Provides increased server uptime by providing advanced storage functionality:

Online RAID level migration (between any RAID level)
Online stripe size migration
Online array expansion
Online logical drive extension
Online drive firmware upgrade
Unlimited global online spare
Pre-Failure Warranty


And in the Fault Recovery section of the standard features

Minimizes downtime, reconstructs data, and facilitates a quick recovery from drive failure

Recovery ROM: This feature protects the user from a firmware image corruption by storing a redundant copy of the firmware image. If the active firmware image becomes corrupt, the controller will use the redundant firmware image and continue operating.
On-Line Spares: There is no limit to the number of spare drives that can be installed prior to drive failure. If a failure occurs, recovery begins with an On-Line Spare and data is reconstructed automatically.
DRAM ECC detects and corrects data bit errors.
Battery-backed write cache upgrade provides for up to two days of battery power for data cache retention. The data backup duration could be extended anytime the server's auxiliary power is available during system power down.
