Perc 6i RAID 5 Disk Failiour
Posted on 2013-12-10
Just for peace of mind please.
I have a Dell Server with a PERC 6i RAID Card running RAID5 build
There are 4 used drives and one is a potential failure.
I have now added an additional drive in to the system and also assigned it to be the dedicated H/S for this Virtual Drive.
I can see it OK in Open Manager and its with in the Virtual Drive as H/S.
Do I need to leave this drive for a period of time before I use it.
If not then do I just take the failing drive offline and that will directly use the dedicated H/S automatically?
