MSA2040 VDISK SPARE

We have a couple of hundred of these enclosures around the country some with a D2700. Our standard configuration where we also have a D2700 attached, the vdisks are RAID6 and there's a global spare assigned to each enclosure. I don't know when it happened but we have one MSA with a D2700 that has a vdisk spare assigned to vd03, one global spare on the 2040, and no global spare on the D2700. This is not our standard configureration. We're unsure what would happen to the integrety of the MSA and the vdxx volums if we were to backoff this the vdisk spare on vd03 and make it a global spare on the D2700.

Re: MSA2040 VDISK SPARE

If a drive is truly listed as a spare (and not yet active in a vdisk as a data drive) then you can change its role. Simply remove (the vdisk specific spare) and add it again as a global spare.
