Pinned topic DS3524 plus Exp3500: Global hot spare

‏2012-10-16T13:23:33Z |
Dear all,
we have configured our DS3524 box as a RAID 5 array where
disk no 24 is defined as the hot spare one.
When we are adding one EXP3500 enclosure - also as a RAID 5 array -
do we have to define also a hot spare disk in the EXP3500 or will
the former hot spare do its job also for the expansion?
Many thanks for any help!
Greetings, Rainer

    Hi,

    Check the properties of the host spare and ensure it is assigned to "all arrays".
