Not sure what you mean by crashed. If one of the disks in the RAID 5 array has failed and is showing an amber light, you simply remove the drive and plugin a new one. Once the drive is replace the RAID will rebuild using the new drive.

What you told is correct. I have a failed HARD DRIVE IN RAID 5. 

 

After shutting down the server and replacing the hard drive will automatically joined in to RAID 5 ?

 

As soon As I plug the Hrd Drive Can I start Using the operating system or I shall Wait ?

 You don't need to down the server, the drives are hot-plug.

You can continue to use the system while the RAID rebuilds

Hi SyedKhan,

 

I would suggest you to please verify the status of the drive in Array Configuration Utility (ACU) before replacement.

 

Once failure is confirmed, highlight the indicated drive in ACU, the drive will start blinking that helps to indentify the correct drive replacement.

 

HP Smart Array Controller starts automatic recovery process / rebuilding the moment you replace the faulty drive in a degraded array.

 

however it's always good to verify your backup / backup your stuff as a safety measure.

 

thanks,

Aftab
