The Physical drive (PD3) is showing status of 'Unconfigured(good)' and a comment 'This Drive Is Foreign' in the output of command 'raidstatus'.

How can I resolve this status.

Hope this helps

"The string, "This drive is foreign" is appended to the serial number when an HDD formatted with metadata from a different RAID controller is introduced. The message is removed when the HDD is assimilated into the array."

"Unconfigured Good—The HDD is usable, but the RAID information is out of sync with the RAID 1 partner. An email alert is sent to the administrator."

The link below will show the above text in the table 5-3
