PowerEdge T410 S100 Failure message - Windows Server 2008 R2

I have a T410 that says the raid1 has failed (2 samsung 850 pro 1TB in raid-1)

I added a Samsung 860 Pro 1TB and assigned it as a global hot spare.

I restarted the system with the bad 850 pro removed (system boots).

The array still says failed?

I unassigned the glogal hot spare  for Disk 0:3 and now cannot assign it as a hot spare again. The disk still says online.

 My concern is it is not really mirroring the drive anymore.

Ideas?

Re: PowerEdge T410 S100 Failure message - Windows Server 200

Hello

You cannot rebuild a failed virtual disk. The virtual disk must be in an online state of some kind to initiate a rebuild, and on the S100 the rebuild is controlled by the driver. You must be able to load into the operating system for a rebuild to process.

The S100 has limited capabilities, you will likely need to delete and recreate the virtual disk. If there is important data you need to recover then you should contact a data recovery company.

The system is up and running.

I can log into it and users are using it.

Ugh..delete and re-init. the driver is finicky already.

Can i just put in one drive and then add the 2nd AFTER the restore?

I did follow the process outlined here:https://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/sln290972/perc-s100-s110-s300-how-to-replace-a-failed-...

yet the array is still listed as failed.
