I have a Proliant ML350 G4 with a RAID 5 on a Smart Array 641 array controller.
It has six drives with one as a online spare. After a reboot the spare came back as failed. Having never seen this situation before, I have a question about replacing the drive.
Do I just hot swap in a replacement drive with the server running, like a normal drive failure? Will the array automatically configure the new drive as a spare?
