RAID 5 Reconfiguration
Posted on 2014-12-23
I have an HP ML-360 G6 server thats Raid 5 with a hot swap (4 drives) in bays 1-4. 3003 Server R2.
The array degraded and the hot swap engaged. I attempted to replace the bad drive in bay1 but that bay is failing and will not bring the drive ready, so I put the new drive in Slot 5. Now i have a 250 GB SATA Unassigned Drive Port 21:Box1:Bay5
The Array controller is ver 184.108.40.206 And the Firmware is 1.78 for the E200i
I am tenetive to proceed, also I don't see a way in the utility to add the drive. I need to assign this drive to the array and remove the drive listed as " X ???SATA Drive at Port 1I:Box1:Bay1"
Can someone give me instruction / procedure please?
I cannot lose this data.
