Description

Rebuild

Rebuilds hard drive data.

  • Suspend
  • Resume
  • Stop

Copyback

Copies data from a hot spare drive to a new hard drive.

When an exception occurs (for example the RAID degrades), a hot spare drive is used to rebuild data and works instead of the failed drive. After the failed drive is replaced with a new drive, data will be copied from the hot spare drive to the new drive. Then, the hot spare drive restores the hot spare state.

Locate

Locate a hard drive.

  • Start: Makes the indicator on a hard drive blinking.
  • Stop: Stops the indicator from blinking.

Place drive Online

Makes a hard drive online.

Place drive Offline

Makes a hard drive offline.

Make Global HS

Sets a hot spare drive.

Remove Hot Spare drive

Removes a hot spare drive.

Drive Erase

Safely erases data from a drive.

  • Simple: erases data on a drive only one round.
  • Normal: erases data on a drive three rounds.
  • Thorough: erases data on a drive nine rounds.
  • Stop Erase: stops data erasure.

Make JBOD

Enables JBOD, which makes hard drives to be used without being added to RAID.

NOTE:

The JBOD mode can be configured only when the LSI SAS3108 firmware version is 4.650.00-6121 or later and the driver of the corresponding version has been installed on the server.

Make unconfigured good

Sets the status of a drive to Unconfigured Good.

NOTE:

After this operation is performed on hard drives in JBOD state, the hard drive status changes to UG. After this operation is performed on hard drives in Frn-Bad state, the hard drivestatus changes to Foreign-UG state.
