Re: Replacing a predictive failure Hdd

Please be patient while I'm asking the crystal ball ;-)

You didn't tell us details about where the disk is (server, array etc.) what OS is running and so on - no details ever.

The best answer at this moment is simply: Maybe.

Hope this helps!

Is it a hot swap drive?

Yes the drive is hot swap. The same change was completed on line, without any issue, but would like to know if there is any documentation advising against doing the same on line, specially when it is in predictive failure mode.

In this document you will see that is says that you can change the Hard Drive online if a Predictive Failure Condition is in the Drive:
