    It seems that one drive failed and it is rebuilding correctly to the hot spare. You can remove the failed drive and replace it with an Avid only branded ISIS drive. Once the rebuild is done (yellow error) and the spare drive has been replaced (red error) then it should clear the status.


    If you are still intent on rebuilding the server, then...


    NOTICE: THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING on the server. NO BACKUP will be created other than what you create yourself. If you need to only rebuild a part of the server, then you need to specify and take a different course of action.


    1. Delete all users and workspaces

    2. Delete the storage group(s)

    3. Unbind the storage engine

    4. Delete the File System

    5. Delete the RAID set

    6. Run the Avid ISIS installer

    This should initiate a new RAID set rebuild (takes about 25 hours).

    AND depending on the version it may require a firmware flash and several reboot of your server.


    Once the RAID set is build and the firware has been udpated, you can start a new file system and bind the storage engine.
