Drive will not rebuild in raid5 configuration
Posted on 2009-02-18
A drive failed in a 6 drive raid5 configuration on a Dell PE 4600 perc 3di controller. The failed drive is in slot 0. After replacing the drive, initializing it, and assigning it as a hot spare the system tries to rebuild but the drive in slot 0 continues to fail. I have tried two different drives that I know are good. ALL drives are of the same mfg., model, speed, and size. My question
is what will happen if I try to assign slot 6 as the hot spare in this case?
