Configuring a Hot Spare Drive

Configuring a Hot Spare Drive


After creating a RAID 1, 1E, or 10 array for the LSI SAS2308, you can configure one or two global hot spare drives to enhance data security.

The LSI SAS2308 does not support dedicated hot spare drives.


  1. Back up data on hard drives and access the Configuration Utility main screen. For details, see Logging In to the Configuration Utility.
  2. On the Adapter Properties screen, select RAID Properties and press Enter.

    The Select New Volume Type screen is displayed.

  5. Select Manage Hot Spares and press Enter.

    The Manage Hot Spares screen is displayed.

  6. Add hot spare drives to the RAID array.

    Data on the hard drives to be added to the RAID array will be lost.

    When the target hard drive is selected, press + or the space bar to mark the drive as a hot spare drive, as shown in Figure 5-38.

    In the Hot Spr column, Yes is displayed indicating that the drive is a hot spare drive of the RAID array.

    The hot spare drive configuration update screen is displayed.

  8. Select Save changes then exit this menu and press Enter.

    RAID array creation takes about 1 minute, during which the Configuration Utility is in the suspended state. Do not perform any other operations during this period.

    After the configuration is complete, the Manage Volume screen is displayed.
