Force acceptance of drive into RAID on Smart Array after removal (but not replacement)

Is there a way to force a drive back into an array? The drive was removed and reinserted and the array believes it is a replacement rather than the original unit.

Hi Oliver,

If the Disk is removed in HotPlug then it will lose the RIS information. RIS will store the array/raid informatiom. When the disk is reinstalled it will detect it has a new disk and starts rebuilding.

There is no way to Force acceptance of drive into RAID on Smart Array after removal.

Regards,
Raj.
