I have a Dell server that has a RAID 5 config using the S300 array controller (inherited). I have replaced a hard drive that failed...
there are 4 drives ttl in a RAID 5 config.
In Openmanage - I drill into the PHYSICAL DISCS section and see all 4 discs as online with an "OK" status.
I went to assign one as a global hot spare but I don't seem to have this option available to me in the AVAILABLE TASKS drop down menu....
As an FYI - before I replaced the failed drive - the failed drive WAS the global hot spare. I unassigned it before it was replaced.
I need to assign a global hot spare so that in the event that another drive fails.
Why is this option not available to me and what do I need to do to have this option available to me?
