HP Proliant Micro Server built in AMD Raid

Say,
I've successfully created the RAID 1 (2 drives).
I'm simulating a drive failure by removing a drive and inserting a new drive.
It reports Raid as Critical, but there is no option to rebuilt it. The Cntl-F menu option is no help....
I've searched HP website but no luck.
The ROM based RAID driver HP supplies is: RAID option rom version 3.2.1540.6
I've found this tool, but it seems to be for a working system and not to repair a brocken server....
Any suggestions?

It should start rebuilding automatically, if you have all the HP Proliant Software Support Pack installed.

What HP Proliant server model number do you have?

Its not an HP Proliant server.
Its a HP Proliant MICRO server model N36L NHP EU Server.
It used AMD RAID BIOS  - see above...

I think as long as the RAID controller is configured for RAID1 and it stays that way, the new drive will eventually rebuild itself.

Did you recheck the BIOS to ensure it is still set to RAID1 after the swap?

I checked all settings. The new drive isn't added to Raid. No option to add only to recreate raid.

If this is a test, then maybe the recreate option would be non-destructive.

Have you tried that option?

You have the original mirror intact - correct?  If so, you could alway clone it back, so there shouldn't be any loss.

Since this isn't an Enterprise class server, there may not be the same options you would have on a proper RAID controller.

Did you try the recreate?
