Also anything can be automated. That is why we are Engineers :-)

We have all kinds of tests.. this is just an experiment but I agrees it is not a real drive failure. We are just auotmating as much of our drive testing as is possible.

hah that is funny it i precisely because we had a intern doing this that he figured out how to automate for LSI RAID card :-).. it actually works. So i am helping do this for a HP P410i RAID card..Yes having someone do this manually is pretty boring and likely make them blow their virtual brains out.

hmm I do not want to delete the logical array. Just remove a single physical drive in the array... it seems the command listed had this option: I can experiment with a little but yes I do not want to delete the entire array.

That is fine. We just need remove a pd and then attempt to take it back online.. it is not attempting to pull the drive physically and check a rebuild occurs which I may have incorrectly referred to in my original question. We are trying to see how robust our RAID arrays are. We have done this manually now attempting to automate.

Thanks that appears be what I need to try. Found this doing a: hpacucli help remove target> remove [drives=[#:]#:#,[#:]#:#,[#:]#:#-[#:]#:#] Provided the feature is available on the targeted controller, the remove command will allow you to remove one or more drives from a specified array. The target can be any valid array.

Actually we are trying to automate a test for this. We have quite a lot of drives to test so do not want have someone to do this manually. its a automation issue basically.

LSI does something like this: offline = "C:\RaidCLI\megacli64 pdoffline physdrv["+drive+"] a0" online = "C:\RaidCLI\megacli64 pdonline physdrv["+drive+"] a0"
