We had a hick-up this morning and it had to do with a bad hard drive on our HP Storage works MSA 20 Hard Drive cage. more specifically 1 of the hard drives went bad (display is showing "84 Drive Failure Box#1 Bay 11")
This area references some server storage area. This is a Raid-5 Array and the replacement drive kicked in and everything was restored about 8 minutes later.
Now we are in the process of ordering a few replacement hard drives (we have none in stock). my question is can I just swap this hard drive just like any other Raid-5 hard drive array? Hot-Swappable, pull the bad hard drive out and slide the new hard drive in?
And how long will it take to propagate the data to the new drive?
