RAID management software to prep drive for removal T-310

Jump to solution

Hi, 

 

PowerEdge T-310 RAID 6 on Perc/6 controller, OpenManager shows drive 03 is foreign.

Operations Manual says to prep drive for removal using RAID management software, but I am not seeing this software on the system. Does OpenManager perform this function? If so, where? I see Dell SAS RAID Storage Manager, v.2.67, A06 for T-100 and T-105 systems, last updated 03 Nov 2011, wondering if this might be what I am looking for. 

 

System is currently up and running on 3 healthy drives, just want to get 4th drive back in the array.

Hello

If a disk is in a foreign state then it is already offline, you do not need to perform any removal preparation.

The SAS RAID storage manager is a utility for workstations and a few servers that do not have baseboard management controllers. The T310 should have a BMC and support OpenManage Server Administrator. OMSA has storage management capabilities.
