Hot spare rebuilt

Jump to solution

Hi All, I am looking for a procedure to rebuilt a hot spare disk. For some apparent reason our hot spare disks are full but there is no fault with any disks in the array.

A normal hot spare will have a single bound LUN which consumes the entire disk. That LUN is where the data is copied to when a disk failure occurs. As long as the Disk is in a 1-disk Hot Spare RAID Group, and has a Hot Spare type LUN bound, it should work fine.

it should start rebuilding on its own as long as you have correct capacity disks defined as hot spares.

It is not rebuilding (there is no disk failure), therefore i like to force rebuilt.

Capacity is correct.

because the hot spares are currently full but there is no faults with any disks. I need to get this done so if we have a disk failure then we have hot spare ready for action.

when you say hot spares are full, you mean they are in use or they are listed as "Inactive"  ?

ok so you have hot spares listed as Inactive, meaning they are ready to kick-in whenever you experience drive failure.
