Raid array stuck in "Ready for rebuild"

Hi all,

We replaced a faulty server with a spare we had, and just transferred the hard disks over into the new machine. Except we only put 1 of the original disks in the primary array, and kept the other as a backup, put a spare disk in expecting it to rebuild. However it hasn't and just sits there as 'Ready for rebuild'. I have tried swapping the disk out with 3 other spares and it is still in this state.

Attached is the Diagnostic report. And i have searched for Fl Rd Recv etc but it doesn't look like the other disk is faulty either.

Any other ideas on how to get this to rebuild? Other than rebuilding the whole array and restoring from backup?
