Failed disk and spare

John Oliver3

Failed disk and spare

Proliant DL380 G3 running CentOS 4.4

One of my disks has failed. In the SMH page for the array controller, one disk is marked as a spare. What do I need to do to make the spare take over for the failed disk until I can replace it?

Re: Failed disk and spare

I think the Drive has not been configured as HOT SPARE.

At this point u need to take out the failed HDD, & replace it with the spare one;

Then ASSIGNING the spare as a HOT spare; only then, it will take over a failed HDD automatically & then rebuild itself.
