We have a XI52 with the four drives configured in a RAID 10. One pair of drives is in a down state but the logical drive is still up. The problem is none of the RAID drive data is available to us.
I can't find anything on breaking the RAID drive to use only the good pair drives. i assume that I can remove the bad pair and continue with the logical drive using only one pair.
IBM support is mailing new drives but it seems like we should be able to break this grouping and run with only one pair in the logical drive and see the data as they are delivered. Anyone else have instructions on modifying the RAID configuration and how it might impact the device?
I am curious to see if I can do this without restarting the box but there doesn't seem to be easy to find directions in this area.
