This is how I created the Hot Spare: I right clicked on RAID Groups and selected Create RAID Group and I then selected the RAID Group ID (237 in this case) and with 1 disk and then selected Hot Spare...then clicked apply.
Is this the proper process to create a hot spare? Is there another way to create the hot spare?
If this is correct why is the hot spare showing all space free and how can I manually make this appear in the Private LUN list with my other Hot Spares?
If I right click on the new SATA II hot spare (237) I have the following options: Destroy Properties Bind LUN (is this the process to make the LUN private?)
Ok I was able to Bind the LUN and now has a private LUN within the RAID Group, and the hot spare is ready....but the hot spare is inactive. Any suggestions on how to make the Hot Spare Replacement active?
