We have a RAID5 array and limited resources.
It has been suggested, for data destruction of a SAS drive with a bad sector, to remove ALL drives from the RAID5 array, and then place this 1 drive into the RAID5 to access and wipe the data. The server we are speaking of is an MFSYS25 Intel Modular Server.
My question: How could the RAID be preserved? My thoughts are, the RAID would need to be deleted and the disk would need to be added to its own RAID0 array or as a hot swap, and then use DBAN to wipe the drive.
The last thing I want to do is cause all the data in the RAID5 to be lost due to negligence or incorrect analysis.
