MSA 2000 drive replacement

Hi there,


I have a drive in enclosure 0, slot 9 which has given a media read error but hasn't been marked as degraded or failed by the controller.  Drives are in a RAID5 config with online spare.  How can I remove this drive safely for replacement whilst online?


Or would you just leave it until it fails?


Whats best practice?


Many Thanks Guys

Is the MSA2000 just attached to a Smart Array controller in a server, or is it behind a (P2000 / MSA2xxx) SAN?
