MSA1000 Drive Failed

We had a drive fail in our MSA1000, but it seems that no one had assigned the spare drive to the two LUNs using this drive. (See below) My question is this...since we have a spare drive just sitting there, can I add the spare drive to the LUN while it is in this state and will it then start to do the Volume Rebuild? Do I need to add it to both LUNs or will it automatically rebuild both LUNs?

Re: MSA1000 Drive Failed

I was also wondering if I can add/remove a spare drive to existing LUNs while they are active, without causing any damage?

Re: MSA1000 Drive Failed

Marcus,
Your best bet is to replace the fail drive, that will kick start the volume rebuild (one by one). Once rebuild is complete you can add the spare to the LUNs without damaging anything.

Thank you. Followed the procedure and we are "good to go".
