Replace faulty disk in P2000 G3 without a spare configured

  1. Wait for the array to become healthy (not degraded).
  2. Add the replacement disk and configure it as a dedicated spare.
  • Physically pull the global spare and wait for the system to start using the dedicated spare disk.
  • Replace the global spare disk. It will show up as ‘leftover’ (LEFTOVR).
  • Clear the metadata on the leftover disk (Menu: top level: Tools: ‘Clear disk metadata’).
  • Re-add the disk as a global hot spare (Menu: Top level: Provisioning: ‘Manage Global Spares’).
