We have an older HP ML 350G5 server that has reported 2 hard drive failures in a RAID 5 array and the server is still running. There are 3 drives in the array with a hot spare,

How do I know which drive to change first if 2 drives are rerported to have failed?

below is the status report

If the rebuild was successful to the hot spare you should be able to replace disk 2 or 3 it shouldn't matter after you replace this drive the RAID 5 will begin rebuilding the degraded array. You should be able to add the new hot spare drive at any time after replacing the first drive.

Make sure you have a backup of all your data before attempting a rebuild, a rebuild puts a lot of strain on the remaining drives.

Best of luck..
