Hello Aun,
Have you tried shutting down the server and then reinserting the HDD?? If not then please do so. No you don't need to reconfigure the array. It could be a failed slot of backplane board.

Hello Aun,
In that case it's a failed backplane board. You might want to contact a local reseller and get it replaced.
