Storage Drive Failure and RAID

A single storage drive failure does not cause a data failure if the storage drives are configured as a mirrored RAID 1 volume (optional). The storage drive can be removed, and when a new storage drive is inserted, the contents are automatically rebuilt from the rest of the array with no need to reconfigure the RAID parameters. If the replaced storage drive was configured as a hot-spare, the new storage drive is automatically configured as a new hot-spare.

For instructions for configuring RAID on the server, refer to Configuring Storage Drives for Operating System Installation in Oracle Servers X8-2 and X8-2L Installation Guide
