Replaced Disks That Show "Foreign" Status
Such a simple thing, but such a pain. We've all seen this, replace a failed disk in a RAID array with a salvaged disk, and it shows up Foreign and does not rebuild. The solution turns out to be simple, as shown in this URL
- omconfig storage controller action=clearforeignconfig controller=0
- omconfig storage pdisk action=assignglobalhotspare controller=0 pdisk=0:0:0 assign=yes
Rebuild will quickly resume.
