I had a faulty disk on my HP Proliant DL360p Gen8, which has p420i controller and Raid10, and spare replaced the faulty one automatically. OS is RedHat 6. I want to do hot swapping work to install new disk in the server.

My question is that, what other operation is needed to replace the hard disk? Like “# zpool replace c1t2d0 c1t3d0” command in Solaris.

The new disk will be built automatically or manually?

  #hpacucli ctrl all show config
  Smart Array P420i in Slot 0 (Embedded) 
  array A (SAS, Unused Space: 0  MB)
  logicaldrive 1 (279.4 GB, RAID 1, OK)

  physicaldrive 1I:1:1 (port 1I:box 1:bay 1, SAS, 300 GB, OK)
  physicaldrive 1I:1:2 (port 1I:box 1:bay 2, SAS, 300 GB, OK)
  physicaldrive 1I:1:3 (port 1I:box 1:bay 3, SAS, 300 GB, OK, spare)

  array B (SAS, Unused Space: 0  MB)
  logicaldrive 2 (558.7 GB, RAID 1+0, OK)
  physicaldrive 1I:1:4 (port 1I:box 1:bay 4, SAS, 300 GB, OK)
  physicaldrive 2I:1:5 (port 2I:box 1:bay 5, SAS, 300 GB, OK)
  physicaldrive 2I:1:6 (port 2I:box 1:bay 6, SAS, 300 GB, OK)
  physicaldrive 2I:1:7 (port 2I:box 1:bay 7, SAS, 300 GB, Failed)
  physicaldrive 2I:1:8 (port 2I:box 1:bay 8, SAS, 300 GB, OK, active spare)

Remove the bad disk. Replace it with the new disk.

That is all.

You don't have to take any other action.

The drive will even tell you which disk(s) to remove and what NOT to remove:
