    How to rebuild RAID 5 on a DIVAR IP unit when a chassis is replaced?

    MegaRAID Storage Manager software automatically rebuilds the RAID 5 on a DIVAR IP unit without data loss. The rebuild is a fully automatic process, so it is not necessary to issue a Rebuild command. You can also monitor the progress of drive rebuilds.

    Once the chassis was replaced and the drives were mounted in drive carriers, follow this step-by-step guide in order to rebuild RAID 5 on a DIVAR IP.

    Step-by-step guide
