I need help in replacing a disk drive in an raid array in an AS/400 9337.  I have purchased a new drive and have replaced the drive in the 9337.  Now I need instruction on how to proceed.  What steps do I need to take to rebuild the new drive or for the AS/400 to recognize the new drive and to clear the error code on the AS/400?  Any help for me?  Thanks.

There is an AS/400 topic area at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Platforms/AS400/ that would be more appropriate for this question.  I suggest you post a (0 point) question in CS - http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/ - to get them to delete this question so you can repost it (Or they can just move this question and delete this comment ;-)

how did you replace the drive? Did you just pull the old one out and put the new one in?
This is what you should do:
-start service tools (STRSST)
-select 1 (Start a service tool)
-select 7 (Hardware service manager)
-select 8 (Device Concurrent Maintenance)
-fill in the "Device Resource Name" field MAKE SURE YOU TYPE IN THE RIGHT ONE OR YOU'RE F#&*ED!!!
-the light of the drive will blink to indicate you can pull it out.
-pull out the drive and stick the new one in.
-back up to the "System Service Tools (SST)" screen
-select 3 (Work with disk units)
-select 3 (Work with disk unit recovery)
-select 6 (Rebuild disk unit data)

Since you allready replaced the disk you can probably just do the first step and then the last 3 steps. The screen will give you a "There are no disk units eligible for the selected operation" error if the drive wasn't replaced in the correct way. All these options in Service Tools are on OS/400 V5R2, if you are on an earlier release they could differ a bit, just look for simmilar options. Good luck!
