Have a Sun v60x with a SRCZCR controller, 2 70Gb drives RAID-1 configuration, Intel Storage Console v 2.12.
Suspected failing hdd and possible bad controller. Replaced controller, and failed hdd.
While attempting to add new hdd to array with remaining good hdd, controller BIOS kept saying the slave drive was not big enough. They're identical Seagate ST373307L's with the exception that the good drive is factory from Sun, the new hdd is from another vendor.
Attempted to recreate array completely, received same message that the drive was too small.
Removed logical drives (I know, bad idea) and attempted to add them both back in, designating the good hdd as master.
Currently; RAID BIOS will not recognize the good drive without adding it back in as a logical device, which warns it will erase all data. Failing drive is recognized, and will boot OK.
Need to know:
1) How to re-add the good drive to the array, as the master. If this machine was destroyed and only the good drive remained, I should be able to add it to another system and bring the OS back up, but when I try to add it back in, it threatens to wipe it clean.
2) Once the good drive is back in the array as master, how to add new drive as slave, without the size limitation message (remember, the drives are identical).
