Replacing Disk in RAID Array

Hi Guys,

 

We have a few HP DL360 G5 servers, with a 3 disk RAID array, I was wondering if one disk fails, does the replacement disk (once minimum same size) need to be a blank disk, for example we have a test server and I was wondering if something happened one of the disk in my production servers could I just take a disk from the test server and put into the production server? If not is there a way to allow me to do this? Im new to RAID so excuse my stupidy if im asking a stupid question!!

 

Thanks

Re: Replacing Disk in RAID Array

Hi,

 

If the disk fails, then replace it with another disk of same or higher capacity.

 

You can refer to this doc for more information.

Thank You!

Re: Replacing Disk in RAID Array

Hi Thanks for the reply, does it matter if there is data already on the disk or if the disk was part of another RAID configuration
