proliant 1600 SA 3200 failed drive in RAID 1+0 win 2000sp4

I have failed drive in a raid 1+0 array.
I have an identical replacement drive to hot swap out. I haven't worked with servers in years and find myself alone w/o my technical staff.

My plan ( please correct where needed ) is to
power down this server ( our network DC! ) and swap out the bad drive for the replacement drive. My expectations are that the bios will detect the new drive and when the controller takes over the array will begin to automatically rebuild the array with the new drive. I should not have to run the array controller utility to perform a recovery, it will automatically ocurr.

Is this correct? Anything I should do/consider in this recovery sitaution?

Many thanks,

Andrew

Power down and swap the bad for the replacement.

Power up and the system should run. It will begin rebuilding after you get to the desktop or before.

It has been awhile since I have done this but am sure you are in good shape.

Good Luck, Andrew.

Hello hpandrew,

If its a hot-swap disk,you don't have to reboot the server.
Slot in the new disk and it should start the rebuild process.
