Removing/ Deleting a drive from a RAID array

Hi all,

I wanted to simulate a disk failure in my RAID array. How can I remove/ delete a single physical drive from my RAID5 array? It does not allow me to specify a 'pd' as a target for delete. My current config is shown below. Is there a way I can do this through the command line?

Thanks,
Akshay

Re: Removing/ Deleting a drive from a RAID array

Hi,

You cannot split an array if it contains logical drives in RAID 0, RAID 5, or RAID
ADG configurations.

check page 29 and 40 of the below documentation.
