Server hang during HDD rebuilding

Dear all,

I'm having a DL360 G4P HP prolaint Server, installed Win2003 Standard Server.
It has two identical harddisk, configured at RAID 1 (mirror), with Smart Array Controller 6i.

For checking Mirror working perfect or not ,I Hot Swap one of the active harddisk & put in again for rebuilding, the server getting hangs. However, when I normal shutdown the Server, plug in that harddisk, the booting message required me to enter F1 or F2 (to automatically recover the data / not recover the data). After I choose automatically recover the data, the plugged harddisk then start rebuilding, and rebuild success.

Can anyone give me any hints ? either any firmware problem/BIOS problem/my installation procedure problem?

(note I have update BIOS,Firmaware & Driver of controller) sill i face same problem.

Thanks & Regard,
Pradip

Check if the scsi cable is properyl connected to the backplane. This is a common problem for this server model and has cause he some headaches in the past.
