Raid 1 disk failing how to know which disk?

Jump to solution

I have a T3600 with the onboard H310 controller. One disk is failing in raid 1 configuration. I can see it is ID 1 in controller bios but how to relate that to the physical location of disk?

The H310 console application


A BIOS screen displays information about the controller and configuration.


During startup, press <Ctrl> <R>   when prompted by the BIOS screen

I installed the windows megaraid app, Apparently when you add the replacement disk the controller is not smart enough to know a rebuild is in order. Instead it creates another non-raid configuration of the new disk. Deleted this config then the disk is available to use for rebuilding existing array.

Sure, got that but it does not tell me which disk to replace. I know it is ID one but when I open case how to know which one is ID1?

Disconnect the power or data on ONE drive. You have a 50 50 CHANCE of getting it right.

Actually as it turns out the connectors are labeled as to 0/1 I replaced the disk but it show disk0 as ONLINE and disk1 as Non-RAID. Do I need to choose the option of Convert to RAID capable? Please no guesses here.
