Hi folks,

I'm in a position where my server's RAID array is not recognizing the
replacement drive I keep trying to pop in. One of the drives went bad
this morning, the replacement isn't auto-rebuilding, so I may need to
delete and re-create the array. HP Tech Support is having me upgrade
the firmware on the RAID controller (it's an HP Proliant ML370 G3 with
a HP 641 RAID card) and see if it will auto-rebuild.

I have a little time before I need to worry - the RAID array is still
operating in 'degraded' mode, but I can't wait too long. We're using
CA ArcServe 11.5 (hosted on a Windows server), with the NetWare client
to perform full backups of the server every weekend. I'm wondering if
the ArcServe DR project is easier than performing a NW re-install and
then restoring the SYS and DATA volumes.

Any opinions? Thanks!
