I have a mac raid connected to a g5 xserve. one of the drives is bad and needs to be replaced. I have one out of another raid that is the exact same thing but has the data from the old volume it was part of. What do I need to do to use it on the working raid. Can i just plop it in and it will overwrite what's on there , or do i need to format it somehow?

Thanks

I have a hot spare, the replacement drive still has data on it from its old raid that it was in, do I have to prepare the drive somehow. Or can I insert it and it will get copied over without problems?
Thanks

Sorry. I don't know the answer to that, beyond what is in the links I sent you.

I decided I'm just going to wipe the drive, can i just hook it to a mac and format the drive? or do I need to do something special formatting wise to be able to use it with the xraid
thanks
