HP DL380 G6 RAID 1+0 - 2 drives, both predicted failure - Will not rebuild

Hi there,

I have inherited a HP DL360 G6 that is displaying 'Predicted Failure' on both of the two drives in the RAID array.

I attended the server location today with a new drive and HOT swap replaced it nad was hoping for the array to be rebuilt, but it stopped at 4% of the rebuild process and then went to 'Ready to rebuild' and marked the new drive as 'predicted failure'.

I wasn't watching the process the first time round, but took out the new drive and put it back in again and it did the same thing. Failing again at 4%.

I suspect that I am now going to have to perform a re-install due to drive errors, but as the server is still online, I'd like to try and avoid this.

Is there a process I can follow to recover the system? Obviously I'll be backing up the data, but I was wondering if I could add any additional drives in the other slots to have it rebuild there? Or is it unlikely that I can recover the system? I suspect if the server reboots it will not restart.

I'm happy to provide more detailed errors on request.
