Setting up spare drives

Storage Advisor Embedded Guide

Part Number

You can set up spare drives to prepare for the possibility of a drive failure. If a drive failure occurs, a spare drive allows you to continue the work by using data that was copied to another drive.

Free drives that are not specified as data drives (drives that are not used for the reading and writing of data) can be selected and set up as spare drives.

Drives that are identified as spare are displayed in the list of available drives.

  1. In the navigation bar, click Others > Configure Spare Drives.

  2. Specify the number of spare drives that you want to set up as Spare Drives, and then click Submit.
