Setting up spare drives

Storage Advisor Embedded User 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 operations by using data that was copied to another drive.

You can set up free drives that are not specified as data drives (not used for the reading and writing data) 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 drives that you want to set up as Spare Drives, and then click Submit.
