I have dell t620 with a perc h710. It is configured raid five with 6 930g sas drives with a capacity of 4.5t.

A few days ago i saw on a reboot the there was a foreign config on the drives. as the os was booting properly i cleared the foreign config.

After hat I noticed that the virtual drive is in a degraded status. Drives 1-5 are online but drive 0  appears unassigned with a status of "ready". the only option the controller gives me is to set it up as a hot spare. I tried that and it set up that way but it wont integrate to the basic drive. How do I get it to reintegrate?
