I changed failed with new one after shutdown server. But nothing is going on.  System is not boot ESXI. And rebuilding process is not going. Please help me. How can I replace disk and start rebuild process normally with new disk.??? I searched on Internet but can not find normal answer for RAID 1.

If you have a Disk Drive failure:

Keep the Server running, pull the failed Drive, insert the new one.

Then the rebuild start automatic (The Geeen LED is blinkting static).

In your Case you can try this:

Remove the new Drive and boot the Server with only the good one.

If the Server ist online, put the new Drive in.

I'm not an HPE employee, so I can be wrong.
