Good afternoon all,

One of my clients has a QNAP Turbo NAS TS-459 Pro II

One of the hard drivers has failed in the RAID 5.

¿So I am thinking something along the lines of

Remove Dead Drive
Insert New Drive
Click ‘Repair’ on RAID volume in config
Wait for repair to complete
WIN.
This does not seem to be the case.
I have inserted the new and nothing. The log reads.
¿[RAID5 Disk Volume: Drive 1 2 3 Hot Spare Disk: 4] Drive 4 removed.
¿RAID5 Disk Volume: Drive 1 2 3 Hot Spare Disk: 4] RAID device in degraded mode.
¿Drive 4 plugged in.
RAID5 Disk Volume: Drive 1 2 3 Hot Spare Disk: 4] Add drive 4 to the volume failed.¿
So what do I do now?

Any RAID Array with a Hot Spare will automatically rebuild the broken array to the Hot Spare (unless specifically setup not too). Why are you removing the Hotspare? The hot spare is one of your new disk in your array you should replace the disk that is failed a.k.a 1, 2 or 3.. As soon as you replace the correct drive the "New" replacement drive will become the new Hot Spare.
