One of my RAID controllers is complaining about a harddrive failure:
-- Controller informations -- -- ID | Model c0 | PERC 5/i Adapter -- Arrays informations -- -- ID | Type | Size | Status | InProgress c0u0 | RAID1 | 465G | Degraded | None -- Disks informations -- ID | Model | Status c0u0p0 | S13TJ1KQ503996 SAMSUNG HD502IJ 1AA01110 | Failed c0u0p1 | S13TJ1KQ503997 SAMSUNG HD502IJ 1AA01110 | Online, Spun Up
so it looks like I have to replace the first disc in this array. But before ordering a new one I wanted to ask what I have to take into consideration.
Can I just order a new harddisc with 500+GB? What happens if I put a larger disc in? And finally will the RAID controller simply rebuild the mirror on the new disc or do I have to start it manually?
