Hello, I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 with a Raid configuration, Controller 0 (Perc6/I Integrated,  which had a failed drive.
We replaced the drive and hoping it would automatically rebuild but it did not spin up.  We tried several drives and concluded after further testing it was not the drive.
So we restarted the Server and now the Drive 2 in enclosure 32 on controller say unconfigured Good.
Any ideas how to get the drive to rebuild?
Thanks

If you look at the drive with OMSA or thru the PERC bios utility... what does the drive look like?  I ask because I suspect it'll report that it has a foreign configuration on the drive(s) which have been inserted.  In the past, I've needed to go into the PERC bios configuration and remove the foreign drive configuration on the specific drives.  (In the unusual edge case, you might have to add the 'new' drives as hot spares, which the system immediately picks up and uses to start rebuilding the array.)

So I restarted the Server loading the bios and the drive was visible( not foreign),,
I started a rebuild on it and upon completion Server drives all healthy.
