Re: HDD Replacement

hi,

if its HW array, the server will see only one disk, mostly if a HDD failed is marked directly on the server for example with permanent RED light LED. If the server is a proliant, it is hot swappable, so that means you can replace it with a new one and the raid controller take care of remirroring by him self.

PS : if its Proliant with ILO, there will be a information which disk is failed, and in witch bay is located, each bay is marked on the front.
