"Failure Predicted" Can I hot swap these drives?
Posted on 2014-03-03
I have a dell power edge server, and the server manager is showing one of my RAID drives as "Failure Predicted" and the Status as "Non-Critical".
Obviously I would rather there NOT be a drive in my raid array that may fail, but I'm curious if I can hot swap this drive? I've done it before on other servers, but never with SAS drives, only with SCSI.
Is there any way to tell if the raid array will be fine if I pull this drive for replacement?
