After replacment of 2 failed drives on 3ware card i got this:

On controler c0 insted of 4 drives 2 units i got 4 units and,

Unit  UnitType  Status         %RCmpl  %V/I/M  Stripe  Size(GB)  Cache  AVrfy
u0    RAID-1    DEGRADED       -       -       -       931.312   OFF    OFF

p1     OK               u1     1.82 TB     3907029168    WD-409824

p3     OK               u3     931.51 GB   1953525168    WD-806869     

After some searching, all that i can see is that i would need to recreate all units, but that sound like a bad idea, i would appreciate any advice.

My question is, why are my two new disks shown as JBOD and how can i import them into u0 and u1?

Just make the small one a hot spare. Wait for it to get added. Then make the large one a hot spare. – David Schwartz Sep 18 '13 at 22:58
