Failed Disk Drive Protected by a Hot Spare

When an array is protected by a hot spare, if a disk drive in that array fails the hot spare is automatically incorporated into the array and takes over for the failed drive.

To recover from the failure:
  1. Remove and replace the failed disk drive.
  2. If copyback is not enabled—In maxView Storage Manager, remove the ‘hot spare’ designation from the original hot spare (the disk drive that was built into the array). Then, designate a new hot spare to protect the arrays on that controller.

    If copyback is enabled—Data is automatically moved back to its original location once the controller detects that the failed drive has been replaced. No action is required.
