We had to replace a predictive failure drive in the a Dell PowerEdge T410. Replaced it with a new Drive but OMSA was not detecting it properly as the status said Failed in OMSA, but it was showing the correct data. Drive size, Firmware, etc..
They replaced the drive back to the old one and reboot and thought it was due to the new drive being a Non Dell branded firmware drive and rebooted and it came up as Foreign. Powered the server down again and put the new drive in. Drive came up as foreign this time too. In OMSA, we cleared the foreign config.
Now the drive just says "Spun Up" and "Online" and it is not doing an array rebuild. The array just says degraded. Luckily this is just the data VD for Backups, and the OS is fine, but at same time I dont want to loose the backups.
No Dell Warranty so I cant call support. How do I save ourselves and get the drive back added to the array??
I am Remote with no idrac, can only leverage omsa.
