Replacement of a failed Drive in Raid 5 Dell 2800 w/ PERC 4e/Di
Posted on 2011-05-12
Got a Drive failure (actually the "state" is listed as "Removed") in a 3 drive Raid 5 Array. From what I've been able to decipher from the Dell Documentation on this, I SHOULD just be able to pull the bad drive, insert the new drive, and the rebuilding should begin.
But - I'm afraid it can't be THAT easy. Am I missing something? Do I need to check that it's "Hot Swap" compatible or something? I'll be honest, RAID still scares me after all these years....so any hand holding would be nice.
