  • Replacing failed SCSI drive in non-removable bay

    Hello,

    I have four SCSI's, 2 in RAID 1 as one group/array and 2 in RAID 1 as second group/array on a Adaptec 2120s card. One of the drives has failed. The drives are not in easy to remove caddys and are mounted so I have to shut the server down. Will the auto rebuild feature still work?

    if it does not work, simply go into the raid management software, or the controller BIOS and assign the replaced disk as hotspare. it should then kick into the degraded array

      OK thanks, do you think it will auto rebuild? I havn't done this before with SCSI so I'm worried about overwriting the good drive with the contents of the replacement.

      Otherwise I will give the hotspare idea a go. Thanks.

        Replaced the drive and was unable to get into the controller BIOS. Kept hanging on "Kernal Error". Anyways the machine booted and it rebuild the new drive automatically.
