Creating a hot-spare drive

Use this action to create a global hot-spare drive.

For ServeRAID-3, -4, -5, -6, and 7 series controllers, a global hot spare can be used to rebuild only one logical drive at a time: the first drive that needs it after a physical drive in an array fails. (Use copy back to restore the hot spare and logical drive to their original configuration.) For ServeRAID-8 series (SAS) controllers, a global hot spare can be used to rebuild one or more logical drives if sufficient space remains after a rebuild is complete.

Notes:

To create a hot-spare drive:

  1. In the Physical devices view, click (ready physical drive) or (standby hot-spare drive).

  2. Click  in the Logical devices view. The ServeRAID Manager creates the hot-spare drive.
