replacing a redundant drive in dell r 510

hi,

One my servers had a failed hard drive and our server had a hot spare which activated. Right now the rebuild is complete and the failed hard drive is in a ready state and the hot spare is now online. It is safe now to pull out and replace the failed hard drive?

Yes it is.  The rebuild will start again and you might get some performance degradation, but the server can remain operational during the rebuild cycle.

The hot spare should now be a member of the array. The failed drive should be pulled and replaced. Its replacement should then become a hot spare

So once i replace the failed hard drive, the new hard drive will become the hot spare and the array will rebuild itself again?

It wont need to rebuild as you're just adding a hot spare effectively.
