Recovering a disk shown as 'Unconfigured(bad)' in RAID

Hard Drive in MSP server shows up as 'Unconfigured(bad)' within array

Hi All,

I have recently encountered a situation where a known good drive was showing up as 'unconfigured(bad)' within the raid configuation.

The attached document can be used to recovery from this situation and get the drive added back to the existing array.

Please note that this procedure will not recover a drive that has truly failed.  If the drive can't be added back to the array with this procedure the drive will need to be replaced.

Thank you,


Jim Sullivan
