P4500 - Sata Drive Replacement

Just want a sanity check before I open a ticket. One of our P4500 boxes lost a SATA drive. It was listed as "Powered Off" in the CMC, so I figured I would try reseating it. No joy. Pulled the drive, and per operating requirements ran it through Spinrite. Drive is fine. Plugged drive back into P4500 and it doesn't see it. It is as if that SATA channel on the RAID card is no longer functional.

What I plan on doing is rebooting the storage node after I migrate the volumes off of it. I suspect the drive will pop back to life, rebuild and we'll go on our way until this happens again. Anyone else seen this happen before? Am I missing some quick fix from the CMC to force a re-scan of the SATA channels w/out a reboot?

Inquiring minds want to know!
