Adaptec Raid 1 Rebuild - 1210SA
Posted on 2009-02-10
Client has an Adaptec Raid 1 array with 2 x 80gb SATA Drive. I believe the card is a 1210SA.
Drive 0 of the array failed and I shut the server down and rebooted back into windows hoping that the drive would automatically start rebuilding. No such luck it seems. in the Adatec Storage Manager the drive just says Ready, when I right click the only option is to Create Hot Spare.
From what I read now... the correct way is to initialize the drive through the raid bios then rebuild through the storage manager. Since I installed the drive I left the premisis and am connected by remote access.
Is there anything I can do to "initialize" the drive through windows to start the rebuild without going back up there and rebooting to the raid bios?
