Bootable RAID1 – Disk Replacement Procedure (Windows)
A disk member of a bootable RAID1 array needs to be replaced (Windows operating system).
- SSD7000 Series NVMe RAID Controllers that support Boot-RAID configurations (SSD7103, SSD7202, SSD7110, SSD7505)
- Rocket RAID Controllers configured to support bootable RAID arrays (standard BIOS versions)
To replace a disk for a Bootable RAID 1 Configuration
1. Boot the system and open the WebGUI (double click the desktop icon):
2. Click the Logical tab, and locate the channel number of the SSD that needs to be replaced under Physical Device Information
For example (shown below), the customer is using an SSD7103 controller and needs to replace a Samsung 970 Pro; the target disk’s channel number is reported as 1/E1/2.
“1” Refers to the controller number, “E1” the port location, and “2” the disk member:
3. After confirming the channel number, shut down the system. Next, remove the disk from corresponding channel/port of the RAID Controller card and replace it with a new disk.
4. Once the disk has bene replaced, power on the system.
5. Once the operating system has booted, open the WebGUI and click the Logical tab. The status of RAID1 will change to “Rebuilding”.
6. Allow the RAID to rebuild. To avoid a rebuild failure, it is import that you do not restart or shut down the system during this process:
7. After Rebuilding has competed, the RAID1 status will return to the “Normal” state; this indicated that the disk has been completely rebuilt and the system can be used normally.
