hpacucli modify issues

I have 2 boxes that were not built with their logical drives correctly. One was built with only one drive and the other was built with a drive in the wrong bay.

Issue #1:
ctrl slot=0 pd all show
Smart Array 6i in Slot 0
array A physicaldrive 1:1 (port 1:id 1 , Parallel SCSI, 146.8 GB, OK)

unassigned physicaldrive 1:0 (port 1:id 0 , Parallel SCSI, 146.8 GB, OK)

I tried:
controller slot=0 array A add spares=allunassigned

but got nowhere but errors that it hpacucli cannot handle this and cannot figure out how else to approach this.

Issue #2

ctrl slot=0 pd all show

Smart Array E200i in Slot 0

array A (Failed) physicaldrive 1I:1:1 (port 1I:box 1:bay 1, SAS, 72 GB, OK)
physicaldrive 1I:1:4 (port 1I:box 1:bay 4, SAS, 0 MB, Failed)
physicaldrive 1I:1:2 (port 1I:box 1:bay 2, SAS, 72 GB, OK)

In issue2, it was built on a different box and the drives moved. I want to delete the physical drive 1I:1:4 then add the physical drive 1I:1:2.

No matter what I try I cannot modify delete or add anything in either case. Of course I want to keep the data on the good drive, but this is really getting to me.

Any help is MUCH appreciated.

Re: hpacucli modify issues


Assuming your goal is to consolidate the two drives to 1 drive.

Boot the box.

F8 when prompted by the Smart array prompt.

Use hardware raid.
