Anyone have any comments with regards to this. Does it blow up if I put a disk in there with data on it? I understand if it will be overwritten, which is what I want. Can I simply install it in another system and remove and recreate the partition to make it "blank" ?
From the release notes:
Replacing Disks in a RAID
Connection supports only replacing a defective disk in a RAID with a blank disk to repair the RAID. Replacing disks in a RAID for any other reason is not supported.
Caution Do not replace a disk in a RAID with a disk that contains data, even if the replacement disk was originally a disk in the same RAID in the same server.
