I set up windows storage server 2012 and have 6 SATA drives in a raid configuration.
Prior to production use I tested by removing drive and adding a spare and rebuilding. That went fine.
Now I see that the original drive can not be reused in the array (and the spare in a different drive slot) unless I presume it is re initialized.
In the same server I had one more sata connector so I am using that and trying to "reset" or "format" the original drive or the spare.. but the format option does not illuminate (it is disabled) offline option doesn't take off line but I can toggle from dynamic disk and static disk...
How can I reset the drive w/o finding a different PC?
