Deleting a Disk Array (ServeRAID)

Deleting a Disk Array

The last array created must be the first deleted.

  All the data and programs in the array are lost during this procedure. Before proceeding, back up any data and programs that you want to save.

To delete a disk array:
  1.  Start the ServeRAID configuration program (see 'Starting the ServeRAID Configuration Program').
  2.  Select Create/Delete Array/Log. Drive  from the Main Menu.
  3.  Select Delete Disk Array from  the Create/Delete Array menu.  The cursor will be active in the Array list.
  4.  Select the array that you want to delete.
  5.  Press Del The Confirm po-up window appears.


  6.  If you do not want to delete the array, select No.  To delete the array, select Yes.


    1.  To use hard disks from the existing array when creating  a new array,  you must confirm the deletion of the existing array.
    2.  In some operating systems, deleting an array and associated logical drives might change the drive  letters assigned to the existing drives.

If a defunct drive is still in a bay, the status shows a Defunct Hot-spare (DHS) drive. You can select Rebuild/Device Management, then reset the drive state by selecting Set Device State (see 'Defining the State of a Drive'). If the drive is good, set the drive state to Hot-Spare (HSP), then select the drive again and set the drive to Ready (RDY). If the drive is defective, replace it with a good drive, then set the new drive state to Ready (RDY).
