Poweredge 2600 RAID question

By mfoley ·
One of the disks in my RAID 5 array went last week. I replaced it with the same model drive (bought refurbed) but the array isn't rebuilding. Server Administrator is showing the disk as 'removed' and doesn't give me any options. The orange light is blinking on the hard drive (in addition to the server). I did a hot swap and thought the rebuild should happen automatically).

and see if it's in the process of rebuilding.

If the light is blinking, that may be the case, and the Server Administrator may not show it online until the rebuild process has completed. Rebuild is frequently low-priority so that it doesn't degrade server performance. It may take a while, especially if it's a big disk.

Reseated the disk and it started to rebuild.
