We have a RAID10 volume on an Intel Matrix Storage controller. One of the four 250GB drives has fallen out of the volume due to a faulty Sata cable.
We replaced the cable, tested the drive and found that it's OK, I just cannot put the drive back to the RAID array.
In the BIOS it says "Failed member disk" and after OS boot the drive shows up under "non-raid disks" and the raid array shows degraded status with one missing drive.
However there supposed to be an option to put the drive back in the raid array, but that option doesn't show up for me (see attached screensot), only a "reset to non raid" option can be used.
Is it safe to use that option? Will I be able to put the drive back to the raid array after resetting it to non-raid?
Thanks in advance for your help!
You are using out dated drivers & software Rapid Storage Technology is supported for your chipset.
Reset the HD to Non-RAID should let you put it back in the array.
