Spare disk on PS4000 is showing offline

Jump to solution

Hi,

We have two spare disks in a PS4000 raid. One is marked "spare" and the second became "offline" without any errors.

ven-1a34-group1> member select ven-1a34-san1 disk select
ven-1a34-group1(member_ven-1a34-san1 disk_15)> show

Health: ok                                                 

Do you think the "offline" disk will go online automatically if the the other one fail ?

regards.

Hello, 

 You are very welcome.  Check the array events screen for any messages when you insert the new spare.

Hello,

 No that does not look correct.  It should show as SPARE

disk sel 23 show

Either that is not a valid EQL array drive or failed at some point and was marked as invalid.
