Hi,

 

Refer to this link:

http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c00596191

 

Replace the drive if the drive is failing or about to be failed.

Replace the drive if its a Hot Plug drive and the RAID 5 will rebuild onto the new drive.

 

 

Thank You!

Hi Suman

 

Thank you for your reply but excuse me i'm a new user of hp proliant equipements.

I want to know how to replace step by step. Do i have to turn off the server before doing it? how many time does it take to rebuild a 300 GB disk.

 

 

Thank

Hi,

 

Run the Array Diagnostics Utility to check the status of the RAID array to determine which drive is faulty and based on it replace the defective. It is to be kept in mind that RAID 5 provides tolerance for only disk failure.

Once the defective drive has been identified, it can be replaced as a hot-swap.
