Removed Physical Disc from Raid 0 Disk Group in PERC H700, how can I add it again?

I have a PERC H700 with a 4x3TB RAID0 array.  

I'd mistakenly removed one Physical Disk from the  Disk Group and can't add it up again. Nothing else was changed.  Probably the Foreign Configuration of the disk was deleted.

The Underlying OS is an ubuntu linux. 

How can I reconfigure the Virtual Disk? 

The actually configuration shows this: 

Current Config

How to add this unconfigured PD back to the Disk Group 0 to take place of the Missing slot?

 

If I deleted this array and recreate one with the same configurations and do not initialize the array it will work?

Hi,

Will it let you set the drive as a hot spare so it will rebuild into the array? If you press F2 from the PD mgmt. menu what options do you have?

Thanks,

I'm using a RAID-0 configuration. Only for improved performance, no redundancy.

In the end I could recover all the system only performing a retag.

Copied all setup configuration and disk order. Deleted the VD and rebuilt a VD with the same configuration! 

It worked!
