UID display after new drive in?

so it's common practice where i work to turn the uid on which lights up the bad drive for the remote hands to perform a hard drive swap if necessary. 

does placing the good drive in and the raid rebuilding successfully shut the uid off or do we / the technician have to turn the light off?

Re: UID display after new drive in?



Replacing the failed drive will not turn off the blue UID light that come on behind the drive slot once the raid has rebuilt.

I have my blue UID lights to go off when I exit my "Smart Storage Manager" but you can set it to turn off after 1 hour, 4 hours, or 24 hours.

The UID light has nothing to do with the rebuid function at all.
