Question about IBM eserver xSeries 255 8685
If this drive is hot swappable, and it's a part of a RAID array, the RAID controller should handle the rebuild of the drive automatically. There are two easy ways to configure the new drive. 1 - reboot the server, wait for the ServerRAID BIOS to start, then press Ctrl + I (or whatever it says) to enter the mini configuration wizard. Once you're in there, you can view and configure the drive as needed. If you installed the replacement drive, and the status light of the new drive is blinking orange/amber, it probably means that the controller has begun rebuilding the array and you just have to wait. Depending on the size of the drive, and the amount of data, and the speed of your controller, rebuilding of a failed drive can take hours.
