I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 which has 3 drives configured as a RAID 5 array. One of the disks is in a failing state. My question is: if I have a similar drive can I simply pull out the failing drive and insert the new one?
The right sequence is:
Prepare the disk to removal (from Dell OpenManage or other software that manage your raid controller).
Remove the fault disk.
Insert new disk.
Rebuild the virutal disk (from Dell OpenManage).
