HP Smart Array P400 - Procedures to Replace Failed Drive in Raid 1+0

Hi, here are specs of project:

Windows 2003
HP ProLiant DL180 G5 - Quad-Core Xeon E5405 2 GHz
HP Smart Array P400/256MB Controller - storage controller (RAID) - SATA-150
Data Drive D: = Four Drives configured in Raid 1+0, one drive has failed.

Attached is HP ACU report, screen of ACU and a photo showing the amber light on the drive that has failed.

I have a new replacement drive. The instructions on the ACU says to check power to drive or replace. Can anyone tell correct procedures to replace the failed drive? Is it as simple as just removing the failed drive while the server is powered on and taking a new drive (no prep/format work, just unwrap from packaging) and plugging into same slot as the failed drive?

I see a firmware update on the Smart Array is recommended, but I am thinking the first step is to replace the failed drive. Thank you

If your drives are hot-swappable, just remove it while the power is on and replace the defective drive.

Firmware update should be done while all you drives are operational.  Replace the defunct drive first and then wait for it to completely rebuilt before attempting to update the firmware.
