Dell Equallogic RAID failover test
Posted on 2014-02-18
recently I deployed a Dell Equallogic PS6510 for customer and everthing is setup properly.
now we are doing a UAT test and customer would like to have a test on disk failure and raid rebuild..
I make a call to Dell Tech Support and they advise me that not recommended to simply pull out the disk for testing, but we are supposed to set the disk offline first.
unfortunately, they can't provide me the guide or command line to set the disk offline.
so wonder anyone here ever try this before?
and after pull out the disk, we will need to re-use the disk as hotspare. into same enclosure.
I believe that this might not possible because the disk already mark as failed disk to the controller.
