I have a Dell PE2950 that has a Perc5i RAID controller that has 1 RAID 5 array on it with 3 drives. I came to work today and one of the drives was in a degraded state (the orange and green lights were flashing. My problem is that the system is out of warranty and I need to replace the drive. The system will not boot to allow me to properly turn the drive off in Open Manage. Can I simply take the drive out and put a new one in? Will it be rebuilt by the other two good drives or will I lose my data on them as well? Help is much appreciated.
