I am running a R710 with raid 1. What I would like to do is swap /rotate one drive every week. I want to do it hot. Example every Friday afternoon I would like to pull one drive and put in the one form last week and have it automatically rebuild. I do not want to shut down or reboot. Where do I start? Thank You Loren
