    Intel Matrix Storage Manager Raid 1 Hard Drive Replacement

    usfjosh

      I am having a problem getting a replacement hard drive back into raid 1.  My I&-920 Volume is missing a hard drive which I just replaced.  There is no option to rebuild the volume or anything like that.  Help please.  Thanks.

          Hello usfjosh,

           

          Just to make sure, right-click on the non-RAID hard drive in the device tree and select Rebuild to this Hard Drive, as per page 19 of the Intel® Matrix Storage Console user guide (assuming the replacement drive is same or higher capacity than the failed drive).

          You may also reset both drives to non-RAID, as you have a RAID 1 the data will remain on the original member drive. Then, recreate the RAID with Intel® Matrix Storage Console and choose the option to keep the data from the original member drive. Please note such option is not available from Ctrl+I.

           

          In case further assistance is needed please copy/paste the system report generated from Intel® Matrix Storage Console’s help menu.
