  • Drive failed in RAID 5. Hotspare did not kick in.

    One drive failed in a 6 drive raid 5 array. There was a hot spare but it did not kick in. It says offline. What needs to be done to return the array to full working condition? I would like a hot spare as well.

    How do I force a Sun x4200 with a LSI SAS1064 RAID controller to resync? mpt-status returns OUT_OF_SYNC for one of the drives. A power cycle didn't alleviate the problem. Does this mean the disk has failed?
