So the set with some drives with no stripe (the model -070 guys have
stripe) is easy. Go into SST work with Disk Units and Work with Disk
configuration and work with removing disk units. Pick one and remove
from ASP. In a couple hours or less it will "Go Away". Once that
happens pick the drive also and remove it from RAID. (I THINK This
step will require DST but brain fuzzy on SCSI) Now Start Hot Spare. Done.
The set with all drives striped will require you to end RAID and
that's more 'risky' so you'll want a full SAVE 21 first. Then Pick a
drive, remove from ASP, when it's gone then do END RAID on that set
(see the risky part?) Now tell it to start RAID with Hot Spare. Done.

3 minutes before we run our entire days business. Good timing, eh?
We ran everything and then replaced the drive and rebuilt the RAID.
I honestly don't remember the last time we had a disk failure before this.
Our System i 520 is on i 7.1 and has 16 drives in it. There are 2
RAID sets with 8 drives each. Disk utilization is less than 19% so
we have plenty of space. (We used to have an IXS way back when,
which is why
way over capacity on disk.)possible
The service guy (ServIT) thought, since we're on 7.1, it might be
to change each of those 8-drive RAID sets to a 7-drive RAID set withhot
spare. I questioned him because of the age of our hardware and saidto
he still thought it was possible. He's going to look into it today.
Since there are some very smart hardware people on this list, I'm
ask here. Can that be done? Can that be done without a reload?--
