SMART ARRAY P400 / PROLIANT DL 380 G5

Good morning , could you support to me in the  following issue ? we have DL 380 G5 installed and we have RAID1 ,using smart array P400  card , each time when we try to rebuild the second disk to establish the RAID1 array , it has passed all the step I mean rebuilding , Ok , but after that it changes to predictive failure according to event diagnostic event id 1216 , I have investigated about it , and it could be because some issues  related to hard drive drive could have been reached , sectors issues and pending counts  enable the flag and it showes the message predictivable failure , we have tried with another disk but it has happened the same ,  the fix could be to get a new disk same size and functionality of  located at bay 0 and put in bay 1 and if it continues could  exchange the first one also by a new one  and configure a RAID 1 again , and do a restore of tje information , Is it posible ? 

Also Is there any problem if we can move the  disks from bay 1 , 2  to bay 3 ,4 and to try again , If we change the disks  from bay 1 , 2 to bay 3, 4 I s there any problem with the functionality of the RAID ,  I mean  in the step when we installed the second disk I mean , shutdown the server , change the disk 1 to bay 3 , boot   server , then put the second disk into bay 4 and try to rebuild the RAID1 ,  it could be done without any lost of data , Is it correct ? 

Thanks for your support

Best Regards
