    Advice on hot swapping Raid Drive

    I had a error in Event Viewer yesterday on one of our DC's One of the drives had gone down in out Raid % config. We use the Intel Storage Console to monitor our raid COnfig. I ordered a new drive and it came this afternoon.

    Just before i go ahead ans swao it tomorrow i though I'd ask advice/opinions. I am going to Hot swap it, by Right clicking the drive and choosing' Hot Plug Replace' take the drive out, then remove it from the bracket and fix the replacement to the bracket. Put the new drive in and choose rebuild raid.


    Any suggestions or advice ?

    Well tried all ways to get it tooo work today, tried the software and aslo the raid bios and it kep showing up as a faield drive. Phone up support and it turns out we have one month left on the warranty ( i thought tit was up) They think its the Raid Controller gone, they are coming in tomorrow.
