this is very helpful. I just had this problem where the new drive does not even light up when put in. I changed the failed/replaced drive to unused/candidate/spare and was good from there

I've been on holiday, just saw this now. What is is just an issue that I ran into back in 2012, I would strongly advise going via IBM support if you haven't already logged a PMR for this.
It looks like your mdisk (array) has taken a spare of a different drive type, due to there being no spares of the same drive type available. I would strongly suggest working with IBM support to get the issue resolved, and also ensuring that you have sufficient spares configured to accommodate drive failures.
