RocketRAID 272x Drive swap
on Dec 12, 2013 at 10:34:13 pm

Alright. Feeling really dumb here. I've never had to swap out a drive from my RAID on a RocketRAID 272x HBA in an 8-bay Enhance Technology enclosure. One drive is showing too many bad sectors. I have a couple of spare drives on the shelf, but I'm not sure how the process should work. Can anyone help me out?

Final Cut Pro 7, FCX, Mac OS-X 10.6.8, Quicktime 7.6.6, Adobe Prod Prem CS5.5, Kona-LHe, 6TB RAID-5

RAID5, correct?

Backup first, unless the data is not critical.

Shutdown, remove the suspect, insert the spare, boot up, launch WebGUI.

If the rebuild doesn't start automatically, look for that option (to use the just added drive to rebuild the RAID set) in WebGUI. Couldn't find that in the manual. If you can't find it either, mark the just-added drive as spare - after that, the rebuild should start.

HTH.

Alex, thanks very much. I do have the option of auto rebuild checked, so I expect it will start on its own. I appreciate the help.
