Re: Smart Array E200i Logical Drive status "Ready for Rebuild"

Did you replace the disk while the server was off by chance?

From the guide:

If you replace a drive belonging toa fault-tolerant configuration whilethe system power is off, a POST
message appears when the system is next powered up. This message prompts you to press the
F1 key to start automatic data recovery. If you do not enable automatic data recovery, the logical volume remains
in a ready-to-recover condition and the same POST message appears whenever the system is restarted.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Smart Array E200i Logical Drive status "Ready for Rebuild"

I would first update the controller firmware since HP always says

"HP requires users update to this version immediately."

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=3709945&prodSeriesId=3808910&swItem=MTX-82d5b3d20c5f4c148e418fa2c4&prodNameId=3808911&swEnvOID=4004&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=5



There is also newer firmware for the disks:

Again, did you replace online or offline?

Hope this helps!

I'm not aware of such command, but maybe you can pull and push the disk again?
