    Step-by-step guide


    1. To determine which disk is broken, the MegaRAID Storage Manager needs to be opened. Use the windows credentials to login, by default BVRAdmin/WSS4Bosch:


    2. The dashboard shows that the drive unit needs attention. If the audio alarm is heard, it can be deactivated by clicking ‘Silence Alarm’ in the middle lower part of the screen.


    3. By clicking the ‘Logical’ tab, the actual status of the drive unit is displayed. In this case the fourth disk (out of three) is broken and missing.

      If the disk has errors it will still be visible in the list of disks and will show a red icon. The ‘Slot’ indicates the physical location of the disk.

      For the DIVAR IP the ‘Slot’ numbering starts in the lower left corner and ends in the upper right corner, counting from left to right and bottom-up.



    4. Before you remove the broken disk, please set it to offline.


    5. When the disk is replaced it should automatically rebuild the RAID volume, no further action is required:


    6. If not, depending on the state of the replacement drive you need to follow this actions:
