I have an MCS server with the adaptec hostraid controller on it, the cold-swap serial ATA one. A drive recently failed, so the machine was shut down, a new drive inserted (of the exact same size and model number as the previous) and the machine was booted up.
When looking at the hostraid configuration utility in windows it shows the first raid array as "Degraded" and does not report the second, newly inserted physical drive as being part of this array. It detects the second drive just fine, but does not automatically add it to the array as all of the documentation suggests.
I've had a look through the windows based configuration and the configuration program you can get into at system POST but neither of these seem to have any kind of option to introduce the newly inserted drive into the array.
Can anyone please make any suggestions to me so i can have my redundancy back?! As i say, its an Adaptec SATA controller running Raid1 in a 7825 (only two hard drives, 1u server) On CCM 4.1.3.
Thanks in advance
