I discovered this morning that one of the 72Gb SAS drives on a HP DL385 G2 server is showing orange and diagnostics confirm that it has failed and been replaced by a hot spare (RAID 5 configuration). The SAS drive is hot plugable so I was planning to pop out the failed drive and replace it with another HP 72 Gb SAS drive from a server that I decommissioned a week ago. The replacement drive is not new and will probably still have RAID configuration /Partitioning information and data on it. Is there anything I need to do to the replacement drive to clear it before I swap it with the failed drive? or will the drive just get completely overridden when it is swapped in?
To prevent issues, I'd be sure and empty the replacement drive. I believe this is the general advice when replacing faulty drives in a RAID system.
