Sun Storage A5200 picking random hot spare
Posted on 2009-05-12
I have a Sun 280R that runs Solaris 9 and Veritas 3.5.
Attached to this machine are 2 x A5200 storage arrays (fibre).
I have them setup so they are on a RAID 5 and a couple of hot spares. B is a mirror of A.
If a disk on B goes down in the array, for some reason a dosk from array A will become the hotspare. As you can see, this really isn't the best way of having a system like this.
Could anyone tell me how I can get this working so if a disk out of array B goes down, it will pick a disk from B to rebuild or add itself to the RAID.
Kind regards and TIA
