If the system is being used and the drive is full it may take a while for it to rebuilt.  If you go the ACU you should see the progress of the rebuild.  

You should also change the rebuild priority, if it is set to low it will take longer to rebuild.

Depending on drive and size this may take a few days.

Since you have a hot spare it should have started rebuilding automatically to that hot spare when the other drive went bad. That should not require any user input at all.

Once you replaced the bad drive with the new one, that new drive should be assigned as hot spare.

The E200 Array will auto rebuild the Array. Let it run. Depending on the ACU Version you have there should be a status at the bottom of the screen showing the process. If it doesn't finish run the ACU diagnostics. Save the log file and upload it here for review.

Appears to be bad backplane as rebuild never completed. Data now corrupt.
Will perform restore once new unit is installed.
