I'm using legacy PerfectMail hardware (L1200, M2000, etc.) and my 3ware hardware based disk array is degraded. How do I rebuild or repair the array?
If your 3ware disk array is degraded you can rebuild/replace disks using the following procedure.
These instructions are based on the3ware 8006-2 entry level (2 port) SATA RAID card. This card can rebuild disk arrays after a failed drive has been replaced. Consider these instructions to be *general* in nature, as this is legacy hardware and is no longer actively supported. If the process fails you will have to build a new disk array and restore the PerfectMail configuration from your backups. Proceed carefully.
To replace a disk and rebuild the array, do the following:
The RAID array will build in the background.
