Rebuilding Logical Drives

A hot-swap rebuild occurs when a controller detects that a failed disk drive in a logical drive has been removed and then reinserted.

To start a hot-swap rebuild:

  1. Following manufacturer's instructions, gently pull the failed disk drive from the server without fully removing it, then wait for it to spin down fully before continuing.
  2. If there is nothing wrong with the disk drive, reinstall it, following manufacturer's instructions.

    If necessary, replace the failed disk drive with a new disk drive of equal or larger size.

  3. The controller detects the reinserted (or new) disk drive and begins to rebuild the logical drive.
