I just need to make sure what the process is to replace a drive after failure.
I have a RAID Controller RS2BL080 with 5 drives configured for RAID 6.
One drive failed and I need to replace it.
Can someone just confirm if I can just pop the old one out and slide the new one in?
IS there anything else that I need to be aware of?
Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.
Due to this RAID controller being discontinued, Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for it, but perhaps fellow community members have the knowledge to jump in and help. You may also find the Discontinued Products website helpful to address your request. Thank you for understanding.

Yes, I just had a drive fail in a RAID 1, with the server up, just hotswap the drive. Now, be sure the drive is the same as the failed one, when I say same, it can be larger, however you can not put a 4kn drive where a 512e exists. I know from personal experience....
Hopefully you have replaced the drive successfully without any issues. Tho I would always recommend to check the compatibility of new hardwares prior to installation or even buying the products. You can always refer to this link to check to avoid future hassles. https://servertools.intel.com/sct. Especially if the brand will be different than what you use before.
