To monitor and test individual devices in the array, the "-d 3ware, The devices in the array are numbered starting from zero, up AMMC 3Ware 9650SE9690SA n-1 where n is the number of physical disks in the array. This naming convention can also be used with the smartctl command to list or set the SMART information associated with an specific disk.

Move the good disk to Slot 0. You can leave it in Slot 1, if it was already there but, for some reason, some AMMC 3Ware 9650SE9690SA the controller cards seem to recover better if the good disk is in Slot 0. Insert a new, blank disk in Slot 1. If the disk isn't blank and has been used in a 3Ware array before, see the steps below about deleting the array and starting over.


Alternately, you can put the disk in a standalone Linux or Unix box and use the following command to zero out the first few tracks to make the AMMC 3Ware 9650SE9690SA controller think it is blank assuming the disk is in the hdc slot: Select the new, blank disk and the existing RAID array i. You can try accepting the default setting to "Halt on source errors", the first time around. Press F8 to save the changes and continue with booting answer the obvious questions, first.


Once the machine boots up, the array should rebuild itself after about 10 minutes have elapsed. It may take several hours. Your only absolute clue that it is done is when the activity light on the controller card AMMC 3Ware 9650SE9690SA tiny, chip LED just beside the IDE connectors on theor next to the J3 connector on the S-LP stops flashing.

However, while the array is being rebuilt, the activity lights on any removable drive bays, or any lights connected to the status light header pins will be on almost solidly and, if 3DM is installed, you will see an indicator that the array is being rebuilt as well as a percentage progress AMMC 3Ware 9650SE9690SA on the 3DM Web page. Or, you could just run the rebuild overnight, while you're napping. Observe the state of the array. If the newly added drive is marked unused and the array marked degraded, the array did not get rebuilt properly. Shut down the machine. Remove the original, good disk. Boot up the machine with only the disk to be deleted in the array.

Select the array which will now be marked incomplete and then select Delete. Shut down the system, reinsert the original, good disk and boot the machine back up.

If the newly added drive is now part of the array, you're in business. If it is not or the array is still marked degraded, the array did not get rebuilt properly. Cloning A Disk If you'd like to clone a disk for use in another system or with another controller card, this is the preferred method for doing so although you will AMMC 3Ware 9650SE9690SA facing a short period of time, while the array is being rebuilt, when you only have one copy of the disk. You can proceed as outlined above in "Recovering From A Disk Failure" to make a duplicate of a good drive from a working array.

Start with the original drive AMMC 3Ware 9650SE9690SA Slot 0 and the clone drive in Slot 1. Follow the steps for recovering from a degraded array.

Once the array with the new drive has been rebuilt, you can shut down the machine and remove the new drive. Free Download AMMC 3Ware SE/SA Firmware (Firmware).
