Failed disk on DL380

I have a failed disk on my DL380 server.
Currently there are 4 disks configed to use Raid 5.
If I replace the disk with the same size, will I have to change anything to get the data back onto the disk?
Or will Raid 5 automatically replicate the data across all the disks?
Thanks.
Sunny

Re: Failed disk on DL380

Hi,

Replacing the disk shall initiate the auto rebuild if your controller supports it. If not you can very well start the rebuild manually.

Was a space configured out of 4 if yes, then the rebuild would allready had happen to the spare disk and the one failed after replacement will become spare drive.

Re: Failed disk on DL380

Hi Sunny,

If your arrays Auto rebuild option is onm then it will sense the new hdd & do an auto include & start rebuilding. Otherwise you have to give manual rebuild.

You can configure a hotspare hdd, so that whenever a failure happens hot spare will do an auto include to the failed disk & new disk will be come new hot spare.

Please go through the following thread,

Hope this will help you,

Thanks for all your help guys.
Got a replacement drive and just took out the old and replaced with the new whilst server was on.
The rebuild happened automatically.
Thanks.
