Drive failure after hot plug

I had a drive failure in a RAID5 set. No problem, since it all is hot plugable and my array should be rebuild automatically. No such luck: when the failed drive was removed an replaced by a new one, all subsequent drives in the array failed aswell!!! I am using a Smart3200 controller and a RAID5 set consisting of 9x9.1Gb WU-SCSI. Has anybody had similar problems? This is quite serious since one relies on the hot pluggability of the set. If this had been my productive SAP-server, I would have been in big trouble.
