Designating a Global Hot Spare

To designate a global hot spare before or after you build a logical drive:

  1. In the Enterprise View, select a controller then, in the Physical Devices tree, select the disk drive or SSD that you want to designate as a hot spare. (See Hot Spare Limitations for help selecting a disk drive.)
  2. On the ribbon, in the Physical Device group, click Spare Management.

    The Spare Management wizard opens.
  3. Select Global, then click Next.

  4. Review the summary of protected logical drives, then click Finish.

    Any other logical drives created on the controller will automatically be protected by that global hot spare.
