I currently have a PowerVault MD 1000 with several virtual disks. One disk was slots 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 in a RAID 5 configuration. 9 was assigned as a hot spare. Disk 3 failed and 9 took over but after replacing 3 I want to get the disks back in order. Slot 3 is now the hot spare. All disks are the same size with identical product numbers from Dell.
Is there a simple way to get 9 back in the group and remove 3? Is it as simple as pulling out disk 9 to simulate a failure and it would rebuild on 3 or is there a safer way to do it?
