Failed disk in IR volume on rx6600

I've a failed disk in an IR volume on an rx6600 (HP-UX 11.23). sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd0 -q raid shows:

Participating Physical Drive(s) :

SAS Address Enc Bay Size(MB) Type State

0x5000c500057ebf65 1 2 140014 PRIMARY ONLINE
0x5000c500057e5685 1 1 140014 SECONDARY FAILED

A very silly question but I can't find a specific answer - will hot swapping the failed drive be sufficient to rebuild the Secondary drive? Or do I need to use sasmgr in some way to fix it?

Many thanks
Adrian

I haven't tried this on an rx6600, but a similar IR drive in a blade server (BL860c) rebuilt itself as soon as it was replaced. You'll see the rebuild progress rate with the above sasmgr command.

Swap the disk and try the sasmgr command again to check - you should see rebuilding.

Hope this helps!

Thank you for the confirmation. I'll just have the drive swapped and let it do the rest.
