Software and Physical Replacement

When the ServeRAID adapter communicates with the hardfile and receives an unexpected response, the adapter will mark the drive defunct in order to avoid any potential data loss.
For example, this could occur in the event of a power loss to any of the components in the SCSI ServeRAID subsystem.
In this case, the ServeRAID adapter will err on the side of safety and will no longer write to that drive, although the drive may not be defective in any way.

It is recommended to use a software replace to recover data when multiple DDD drives occur.
In this situation, you may lose data on drives that are not actually defective if you run a normal rebuild process.

Perform a software replace or a physical replace according to the following criteria:
