comment Replace predictive failure in RAID 10 array
No problem, we have a minimum rep limit thing, it's actually the same on SO but you obviously have enough rep, either way don't worry, I stopped worrying about rep a LOOONG time ago :)

comment Clone and then route SNMP traps to new destination
Sorry, what's wrong with just sending to one destination? that's how many systems work - I don't understand the issue

comment How to migrate RAID-6 from 5 disks to 4 disks while increasing disk sizes
@Andreas - just out of interest have you got 4TB disks with 100% duty cycle? worth checking

comment HP DL380 Gen9 Disk Array issues
No idea on your problem but we've moved lots of Gen8 and Gen9 disks between each other without an issue - I suspect it's more of a localised problem than a design one.

comment How to recover from raid 5 failure of 2 disks with tw_cli?
There's only two options these days R1/10 or R6 - we get so many people on here asking why but just do a search here, you're not the first one to be in this position but we're doing our best to educate people so that maybe you're the last.

comment How to recover from raid 5 failure of 2 disks with tw_cli?
Thank you, we're always looking for examples of why nobody should be using RAID 5 in 2015 - this will hopefully help many others in the future from emulating your mistake.

comment ESXi 5.5 + vCSA Upgrade
You don't need to unregister anything, simply add the existing hosts to the new VCSA, that's all - seriously, nothing else - the DC will carry on working, you don't need to change anything, just add the hosts to the vC - certainly there's nothing you need to do to the AD setup.

comment Recovering data from a failed SAS drive? (RAID0…yes, I know)
I'm sure you'll be able to recover SOME of the data if not all of it, but it won't be quick and you're going to have to pay someone else to do it - better have deep pockets too!
