HP Proliant ml350 G5 E200i RAID 5

We have a HP proliant ml350 g5 running 3 drives in raid5 running server 2008 x86, we had a drive in our array go bad . so we swapped the drive with a new one. The server did not rebuild the array like it should have. Instead it thinks a drive on Port 1 Box 1 Bay 2 is a part of the raid which everything else is on Port 2 Box 1 Bay 1 and 3 and WAS 2 . We put the drive in and it now shows Port 2 Box1 Bay2 has a drive in it as unconfigured. i can figure out how to remove the Non existent FAILED drive and add the unconfigured drive back in the RAID so it may rebuild. I have attached the ADUReport.

Unfortunately you cannot modify a degraded array, which annoyingly means you can't add a hot spare to it. Works with Dell PERCs but not HP Smart Array controllers.

Drives moving on Smart Array controllers occurred on parallel SCSI controllers when address lines failed, haven't seen it happen on SAS controllers such as e200 before though. I can only suggest trying the replacement in what other slots are available. Maybe swapping the cables over on the controller or backplane will do the trick since that would swap the port they are on, and maybe that's how the drive got relocated in the first place.
