If you have online spare configured , wait for the array to rebuild before you replace the failed drive.
Once this is complete the new drive will be the online spare .

Rebuild will take place automatically, if you have a online spare.

that is, when I insert the replacement disk, not to be any process of reconstruction and this disk will be the new spare disk ?

Hi Carlos,

In case of MSA1000 once you replace a faulty disk with a new disk then the new disk again becomes as a data disk and the spare disk (which got rebuilded data on it) will be back to its spare position.

Means rebuilding will start one more time.

Example:
If before the failure the disk in slot 10 was spare disk then after replacing the faulty disk, slot 10 disk will be back to spare only.
