    Intel Matrix Storage Console 8.9 - RAID 5 array showing degraded with SMART event



      I have a customer who has a small old server with a RAID 5 array of 4 drives.  The server is running Windows 2008 server with Intel Matrix Storage Console 8.9 installed.


      The array is showing as 'Degraded' - per attached screenshots.


      One of the Drives is reporting a SMART event - per the other screenshot


      Is it OK to just replace the drive with the SMART event ?  Will the RAID 5 array automatically rebuild after that ?


      Or is there something else that needs to be done ?
