Please see error messages below: Listing first from bottom of this page. I can see from the events that the drive failed an attempt to recovery was started but failed. This drive is from a RAID 5 set hot swappable. Is it just a case of replacing the drive and the disk set regenerates?

Yes if it's a clean drive. If it's been previously used in another system it should be erased first by putting in a spare machine and run system system erase through smartstart - this will erase ALL disks in the spare machine of course.

Most RAID controllers will perform a automatic rebuild as soon as you replace the failed (or failing) drive with a new one.  This process may take several hours.  Replace the drive and then check it's status after 8 hours or so.  It should be OPTIMAL (vs. DEGRADED) by then.  If not, be sure to check your settings to be sure the array is set to rebuild automatically.

You can't disable automatic rebuild on Smart array controllers. You can increase the rebuild priority though under the ACU which might be a good idea in case another drive fails before the rebuild completes.
