Thanks for the reply, Dan_O...
Drive 14 Actions (this should be my hot spare):
Create Storage Pools
Drive 1 actions:
Same as above
When I Click the Storage pool, I have these actions available:
Create Virtual Drive
Prepare for Transport
Create Storage Pool
If I click "Delete", it warns my virtual drives will be lost. As this is a production blade center, I cannot have these destroyed. I simply need to get drive 14 out of this storage pool so I can re-assign it as a hot spare.
Weird. So, when you put a replacement Drive 1 in, I would have expected the new Drive 1 to become the Hot Spare. The RAID should have been happy on drives 2, 3, and 14.
But you say the options for Drive 1 are the same, which makes it seem like there isn't any hot spare. If you check Drives 2 and 3, do either of them have any action like "Make Hot Spare"? Or are all four drives somehow migrated into a four-drive array?
The only other thing I can think of, is to get the diagnostic summary and contact support. They can look through the history and find out what happened, and what the current state is.
