Need help for replace a failed disk to MSA2000

Hi,

Recently one of the disk in MSA2212fc is faulty. After replace the disk we found the disk status is AVAIL but all other disk status is VDISK.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And I have one vdisk and 4 volume.

Please provide me the action plan / command for add the disk to the existing vdisk. The MSA is not available through web GUI.

Hi!

You need to take the new disk and put it as a spare in the vdisk.

CLI reference for the MSA2000 is here:

http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02710176/c02710176.pdf

See page 154 for set vdisk-spare
See page 129 for set global-spare

"set vdisk-spare disks 0.5 VD"

More manuals here:

If you don't have dynamic sparing enabled you need to make it a spare disk first.

Hope this helps!

Re: Need help for replace a failed disk to MSA2000

Hello,

What will happen after add the disk as spare? Is it impact on existing volume? ( I have 4 volume). What happened of my data that was available on the failed disk?

Re: Need help for replace a failed disk to MSA2000

If a disk went bad the system will restore the data on a spare drive. So the logical drive will be OK, but you don't have a spare any longer. With dynamic sparing a new disk will be used as spare if needed, without you need to make a new disk a spare, otherwise it will just sit there doing nothing.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
