Disk Failure on Child domain
My first post and hope you can help. Iíve come in this morning to the song of Ďbrokení. The one we all know well, Iím sure.
We have a Dell Poweredge1800 child domain and today one of the hard drives has failed.
I havenít dealt with this issue before and donít want to make any wrong clicks and erase the lot!! The RAID is setup on a PERC 4 S/C Controller and Iím using the Dell Open Manage Array Manager (Dell support ran out last year!!). This tells me that Disk array 0:1 has failed and it has 128MB of unallocated space?? It shows this failure in 2 areas, an Array Group which contains a Virtual area showing both disks and a backplane area showing both disks.
Basically I donít know what options are open to me. Is it possible that the disk can be recovered and if so how do I go about this. If it is better to just replace the disk can I do that while the system is still running (How can I tell if hot swap is available), will the disk initiate itself and what precaution should I take.
Any help would be really appreciated. Going to stick my face in Google now!! Cheers

I've done a bit of background and some advice says to try a 'rebuild' on the failed drive. I'll try this after 3pm when the pupils have gone. Fingers crossed.
Will give Dell a go and see what response i get.
