Pull out the disk, insert a new disk with same spare part#. Rebuild will start automatically.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hello,

I would suggest you before hard disk replacement, you have to know the raid information.

You can replace the hard disk with 

Raid 1, 5,,6,10.

You can not replace the hard disk online in raid 0. In raid 0 you can lose the data.

Predictive Drive Failure Replacement Procedure:

1. Prior to replacement of any predictive fail Hard drive check the logical drive and Array health status from SSA/ACU.

2. This is one of the best article to refer while troubleshooting the predictive fail hard drive, mmr_sf-EN_US000006557.

https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?cc=us&docLocale=en_US&docId=mmr_sf-EN_US000006557&lang=en-us

3. Make sure the predictive drive which you are replacing is hot swap. And Drive LED is flashing Amber.

4. Once replaced the predictive failed hard drive with new one, make sure the new drive rebuilds successfully.

5. Make sure the replacement hard drive running exact same firmware level which matches the other hard drive in the server. (Same model).

 

NOTE: A hot swap HDD can be replaced when the server is running as it is not going to affect the customer production. And there is no chance of losing the data if the logical drive is fine.
