Replace broken HD in raid5

I have an DL380G4 and one of my discs are broken in the raid5. I have a smart array 6i card, how shall i replace it? Just take out the broken and replace it with the new one? Must i do something else to make the new disk active and working in the raid? (prehaps some recovery?

Re: Replace broken HD in raid5

You just replace broken drive with new one.
You even don't need to reboot server.
SmartArray controller will automatically start your RAID-5 rebuild.
You can check rebuild progress in Array configuration utility.
