we had a 1TB Seagate SAS drive go bad in a Dell PowerEdge.  We purchased a matching drive from Amazon and replaced in the server.  The drive shows READY - but we can't seemingly add the drive back into the RAID array.  The only option we get when selecting F2 (Operations) is to "Make Global HS"....we can't move the cursor to Replace or Rebuild options on the menu.  any help greatly appreciated!

You need to add it as a hot-spare to start the rebuild. You can only choose "rebuild" a "failed" drive.

Hit make Global HS **HOT SWAP** then go with REBUILD.

Those instructions don't make any sense in the context of a PERC 6.
