On IBM x226 server (86481C6) I have two disc set in RAID1 array. The first disk is fine, and the second disc is damaged and RAID manager appears defunct state of this disc. Will the RAID controller and still try to write on a damaged disk, or will continue to work exclusively with the correct disk?

    It works exclusively on the working disk. Make a full/fresh backup of the server (even better an image) and consider changing the defunct disk with a working (empty) one.
