Hi, I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 with 4 drives in a RAID-6 config on a PERC 6/I controller. OMSA reports that Drive 2 is in a foreign state with predicted failure. I have a replacement drive and was wondering what the correct procedure is to replace the drive.
1. Do I just pull out the failed drive and install the new drive. Clear the config if it reports as foreign and then assign as a hot spare
2. Clear the foreign state of the failed drive first and then install the new drive and clear the config if it reports as foreign and then assign as a hot spare
Any suggestions appreciated
