New hard drive added to raid 5 array, listed as 'removed'

Post by gentinphilly » Wed Dec 12, 2012 1:13 am

Hola -

So, had a disk flashing red & the large red button flashing red; ok, it's almost 4 years old, fair enough. But I replaced it with a same sized (1TB) disk , still flashing & in the web admin it says 'removed' for that disk. Obviously this disk can be bad too, but my suspicion is that's it's not; what should my next troubleshooting steps be? And, based on this: http://www.lacie.com/support/faq/faq.htm?faqid=10626 I don't need to initiate the reuild, it should be automatic but, is there anything I can 'goose' here?

Many thanks for any help,

Phil
