Re: how to fail a disk manually in FAS 3140

You don't need to fail a 'spare' disk (Just remove 'ownership'). "Fail" only applies to 'File-system' disk.

 

Just follow these steps:

Regarding taken-over event, check the console messages , there should be sufficient warnings for this turn of event.
