HP StorageWorks D2D2503i Backup System - disk not detected.


I have a HP StorageWorks D2D2503i Backup System

Upon checking the software under RAID it appears that one disk is not detected. The RAID state is 'failed, recoverable'. I can't manually attempt to rebuild the RAID via the software (no option to do this).

Has anyone replaced a disk in this device? Or is there a way to re-build the disk without replacing the disk?

Any advice  - The software states the disk is 'not detected' rather than 'failed'. Can I re-build or do I have to replace it???
It's designed to be an appliance -- somewhat of a black box.  There is no way to force a rebuild of the array.
Things I would try:
1) remove the failed drive only.  Wait a minute or so and re-insert; see if it is recognized.
2) power the system off.  Wait a minute or so; see if it sees the disk.
3) failing those, purchase and install a replacement HP drive.
Question has a verified solution.
