I have a pegasus2 R6 12TB.

Drive 6 went bad and I replaced it. I now need to rebuild the Disk Array (degraded 12TB 0 byte enabled # of LDs 1) and the logical drive(critical 10TB raid5 strip 1 MB array of 0).

Please follow the below steps to start the rebuild on the drive.


- Make sure you hot-plug the new drive.

- Click on "Physical Drive" list in the Utility and make sure the replacement drive is showing up in the list .

- The status of that drive should be "Unconfigured" .

- If the status is "Passthru", then unlock the Utility and click on settings for that drive and change it to "Unconfigured".

- Confirm the settings ..

- Then click on "Background Activities".

- Click on the Start button next to the Rebuild.

- Select the Source drive and the Target drive and Start the process.

- It will take sometime to complete the process and you can see the progress in the bottom.


Thanks !
