I just started consulting for a new client and one of 6 hard drives in their server's SAS array failed. Going over the options of replacing the drive, they didn't like the thought of spending about ~$350 for a drive replacement at this time. Instead, they inquired if it would be possible to just pull the failed drive and get by since there is plenty of excess storage space.
I tried running the command: ctrl slot=1 array a remove drives=2I:1:5
to remove the failed physical drive but I was given this error: This operation is not supported with the current configuration. Use the "show" command on devices to show additional details about the configuration.
I've looked through documentation and it seems to be possible, I'm just not sure I have the syntax of the command correct and using the 'show' command doesn't reveal anything that pops out at me.
