Re: Replacing a Failed Disk in msa 2040

Hi,

 

Make sure the drive is not DOA

Assign the drives as a global spare.

 

To change the system’s global spares

1. In the Configuration View panel, right-click the system and select Provisioning > Manage Global Spares. The main panel shows information about available disks in the system. Existing spares are labeled GLOBAL SP.

 In the Disk Sets table, the number of white slots in the Disks field shows how many spares you can add.

 In the Graphical or Tabular view, only existing global spares and suitably available disks are selectable.

2. Select spares to remove, disks to add as spares, or both.

3. Click Modify Spares. If the task succeeds, the panel is updated to show which disks are now global spares. 

 

 

Regards,

JD
