Question - Replacing dead drive

4 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

I have one drive that is dead. My array is 9 data disks all 3TB and 1 original 3TB Parity drive. I think I might have messed up a little on replacing the dead drive.

 

I have a new 4TB drive that I have added as Parity 2. All good there.

 

How to I now unassign Parity 1 (Existing 3TB drive) and add it to the array again to replace the dead data drive?

 

Thanks in advance.

Stop the array, unassign parity 1 & assign to where the dead drive was, restart array.
