Hot plug HDD

When a hot plug drive is removed from a Proliant 1600 running Novell Netware 4.2 with software mirroring across the 2 HDD's, if a drive is removed on-line, Netware correctly reports the mirrored partitions are out of synchronisation. However when the drive is plugged in again, it just sits there and does nothing. Is there anything that can be done to make Netware commence resynchronising the drives without downing the server and restarting it?

Re: Hot plug HDD

Try the SCAN FOR NEW DEVICES COMMAND, then LIST DEVICES to make sure the drive is there. If you can see the drive you should be able to use INSTALL.NLM to re-mirror the drives.
