dell equallogic volume offline

We have dell eqaullogic arrays in group.
One device had disk failure and the volumes went offline.

How can I bring the offline volume back?
Will it bring the volume online if i replace the disk?

Volumes should not have gone offline if the array was healthy beforehand.

What does the GUI show for drive status for all members? What is in the event logs for the group? They should say why they went offline. Do you or did you have hot spares?

Are they under support and have you contacted Dell? I have lost probably a dozen plus drives over the years and never had it cause an issue with my Equallogic arrays going down.
