    Intel Rapid Storage Technology Rebuilds Wrong Volume when Drive Inserted

    mbmast

      I am running Intel Rapid Storage Technology version 11.7.0.1013

       

      I have the following arrays and volumes defined:

       

      Array, name: SATA_Array_0000

          Volume, name: System, type: RAID 1

              Disk 1, present, size 1TB

              Disk 2, missing

       

      Array, name: SATA_Array_0001

          Volume, name: Media, type: RAID 1

              Disk 1, present, size 2TB

              Disk 2, missing

       

      When I insert the missing 2TB disk, Intel RST automatically assigns it to the System volume and starts rebuilding it.  I never have the opportunity to specify that it is the Media volume that is to be rebuild. 

       

      I cannot remove the 2TB disk from the System volume (where it does NOT belong) and assign it to the Media volume (where it DOES belong).

       

      Ugh....

       

      Here are some more gory detials:
