Dell Powervault failed hard disk and replacement
Posted on 2012-04-13
I have a Dell 2850 (not under warranty) connected to a Powervault 220. It is RAID5. I had a disk failure on 0:3 and replaced the drive. Via OpenManage, once I made the switch, the drive still shows offline and will not allow me to bring it back online, nor will it give me the option to rebuild. The light on the failed disk was blinking amber, and when I made the switch with the new drive, the lights went to green. I rescanned the controller, but it didnt have an effect.
Currently, I can see no data that was on the virtual disk.
