HP array utility

we have an HP server with windows 2003 server installed, I can login to it and open Disk Management. I see disk 0 and disk 1.
disk 0 is normal but disk1 shows unallocated, with red X.
the server has 2 physical drives of 72 GB and 2 physical drives of 146 GB

I ran HP ACU and see the Logical drive1  RAID 0 -- the size is about 72GB
I also can see the Logical drive 2  RAID 1 0 -- the size is about 146 GB, but there is red X on this logical drive,

I ran the rescan controller but nothing has changed.
I want to mention that one of the physical drive (that belongs to Logical drive 2) has been replaced.

Any idea on how to get rid of that red X sign?

Thanks

Red marks in ACU are normally not a good thing.

If you mark the drive that has the red mark, you usually get the option on the right side panel to see what the error message is?

in the right side all I can see message status with Red X -- nothing that shows the details.
Though I was suspecting the previous drive was faulty and replaced it by another new drive.

and during the reseeding of the new drive I can see the light solid green but not flashing as the existing drive,

OK so somehow the rebuild hasn't started?
Could you try to take a screenshot of what you see in the ACU?

Sounds like logical disk 2 doesn't exist any more and has to be deleted from the RIS using the ACU, screenshot as asked for above, or ADU report **as attachment not pasted into thread** will help.
