How to replace a failing disk in a Dell PERC H700 RAID 10 Array
Posted on 2014-10-14
Im using a DELL r710 server with a PERC H700 RAID card set in a RAID 10 configuration.
It has 4 disks 0,1,2,3.
The server is running, and I can access OpenManage Server administrator on it.
Server Administrator showss Physical disk 3 has a warning (non-critical) and the disk is flashing amber at the front of the server.
When I look at the options for the drive under the "Physical Disks on Controller PERC H700 Integrated screen" I get an "Offline" option.
I have a spare compatible Disk (Dell, same size, speed etc)
Can I just take the failing drive out and put the new one in or is there a procedure that has to be followed?
