We have a W2k3 server with a hardware RAID1 setup using 2x80GB SATA disks and an Adaptec SATA HostRAID (aarich) CERC SATA 1.5/2s controller. One of the disks failed so we ordered a new disk (80GB as well) and replace it with the failed one. The RAID is now reporting as "Degraded" and there doesn't seem to be an options with the Adaptec Storage Manager software join the new disk to the array.

Can someone please help.
