Hi guys, need your help once more. I need to replace a failed disk (RAID 5). I'm not shore how to do it, should I use navigator or DST? Need to stop RAID first? I already have the document with the steps to rebuild data on the new disk, just don't know what to do before that. Tanks in advance, appreciate your help.

    If possible, you should use iNav. I don't have V5R4 available, so I'm not sure what is allowed. V5R3 iNav doesn't have good support for it, but 6.1 is nice. Do you have a non-configured spare disk? -- Tom

    jinteik, i donĀ“t have any maintenance contract.Tom, no spare disk. I think i will do it this way: http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/powersys/v3r1m5/index.jsp then, inicialize and format the new disk and rebuild RAID. Looks fine to you?

    There are multiple methods within that navigation link. To show a specific inner link, right-click the link and select it for opening in a new tab. The new tab will have the inner link in the address bar. -- Tom

    We are running v5r3, one of our disk failed. After getting a new disk, we followed the procedure under DST.  From what I remember, we shut down the disk (not raid group), hot swapped it with the new one.  It came up as a new disk, took the option to initialize it and add it to the group.  The AS400 initialized it, started to rebuild the raid on that disk group.  I think it took about 10 hrs to finish.  All of this was going on while the production system was running (was running a little slower - this was a normal work day with all users/jobs running).
