Compaq Proliant 3000 Hot Swap Instructions

We have a Compaq Proliant 3000 server with 4 hotswapable hard drives of capacity 9.1*4 in RAID 5 environment. One drive has expired and we have purchased and expect replacement plus spare tomorrow. Can someone please direct me to a link or provide instructions on preparations and how to hot swap this drive.

These drives are very easy to swap out.
The assumption here is that your server has a RAID controller in it. If so, you can either rebuild the failed drive while the server is runnig, or you will be prompted when the server boots up. Here is a document that explains how to rebuild the array if your server has a Compaq SmartArray Controller installed:

If not, you will have to rebuild the array with the O/S.

Here is a document that can give you a good overview:

If your 3000 has the newer universal drive cages, read here:

I hope these documents help. -john
