HP ML350 P410i Hot Spare won´t work.. different drive model?

I have a 4 disk on raid 5.....
One of them fail and I replace it with another compatible HD of the same size and didn´t work...
After going into the Storage Administrator console I found this.
Original drive
Size 279.46 GiB (300.07 GB)
Drive Type SATA HDD
Model ATA WDC WD3000BLFS-6

Hot Spare
Size 279.40 GiB (300.00 GB)
Drive Type SATA HDD
Model ATA WD3000BLFS-23YBU
Serial Number WD-WXE0C79P7715

The 0.06 GB difference is making this drive not to work with the current array?

I would not think it would.  have you run the HP Raid Array configuration Utility to see what it says?
I would think that your cache battery would be the culprit.

The problema was the size of the disk....  the supplier sent me once again the wrong size and before I could buy a bigger one,,,, a power failure crack my last disk and the Raid went to FAIL... :(

I spend all weekend recovering back from my backup, I created a new Raid 5 with the 299.9GB drives, and everything went back to normal!

Thank you,

Storage

Computer data storage, often called storage or memory, is a technology consisting of computer components and recording media used to retain digital data. In addition to local storage devices like CD and DVD readers, hard drives and flash drives, solid state drives can hold enormous amounts of data in a very small device. Cloud services and other new forms of remote storage also add to the capacity of devices and their ability to access more data without building additional data storage into a device.
