Re: cannot replace failed frive

Hello :)

 

You need to assign physicaldrive 2I:1:1 as spare for that array

Re: cannot replace failed frive

I can't:

 

starlnx1:~# hpacucli ctrl slot=1 array A add spares=2I:1:1

Error: This operation is not supported with the current configuration. Use the
"show" command on devices to show additional details about the
configuration.
Reason: Array is transforming

Backup server data

 

Shutdown server

 

Replace failed drive with unassigned drive

 

Power on server and observe dialogs and prompt from P400 controller

 

(there might be a rebuild/repair ... can't remember exactly for P400 but here:

I will try that. I have tryied so many things on this array that I am not sure if I have already done it.

I will let you know ...

Re: cannot replace failed frive

reboot didn't work.

no "F1" or "F2" prompt on boot except that P400 reports that one drive (with the wrong ID) needs to be replaced.
