I have one drive failure on RAID1 as showed on display and it shows critical on openmanaage. Would replacing the critical SAS drive on RAID1 automatically rebuild the virtual disk 0 on raid1 or needs to be rebooted and build from disk utility?

If you get the original replacement from Dell, and it has no information on it already, then yes, it should automatically rebuild. If your disks are directly accessible without having to open the server's case via a hot-swap bay, just pull out the bad disk while the server is running, and it should start rebuilding. Don't shut the server down.

Depends upon the model of the raid controller.
If it's hardware raid,then probably yes.
Is it hot swap?
If so ,then just swapping the disk out while running should rebuild automatically.

It should automatically rebuild, if it doesn't then you may have to set it as a global spare. If it still doesn't then post back and we'll tell you how to erase metadata/foreign disk.
