PX_TAG_FAQ_012_A = "It shows how the current controller configuration is affected by the tasks that you perform. This configuration is not committed to the hardware until you choose to save it on the final screen.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_013_Q = "What do "Back", "Next", and "Cancel" do?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_013_A = "Throughout the Express configuration process: "Back" undoes your changes on the current configuration step and takes you back to the previous step. "Next" processes your choices on the current step and takes you to the next step of the configuration process. "Cancel" discards the proposed configuration and returns you to the configuration method selection screen.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_014_Q = "What is a logical drive?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_014_A = "A logical drive is space that equally spans across a set of physical disks. The logical drive acts as though it is 1 disk.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_015_Q = "What is fault tolerance?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_015_A = "Fault tolerance is the level of protection offered on a logical drive. It specifies the amount of space that will be used for data and the amount that will be used for data protection. Different fault tolerance levels have trade-offs for performance, space, and protection.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_016_Q = "What is RAID ADG (Advanced Data Guarding)?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_016_A = "RAID ADG is the fault tolerance level in which data and data protection are distributed across all physical disks with protection for failure of more than one physical drive.  RAID ADG logical drives can sustain two drive failing without data loss.  The maximum amount of space used for data protection is equal to the size of two physical disks. RAID ADG requires a minimum of 4 physical disks in the array on which the logical drive is to be created.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_017_Q = "What is RAID 5 (Distributed Data Guarding)?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_017_A = "RAID 5 is the fault tolerance level in which data and data protection are distributed across all physical disks. The maximum amount of space used for data protection is equal to the size of one physical disk.  RAID 5 requires a minimum of 3 physical disks in the array on which the logical drive is to be created.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_019_Q = "What is RAID 0 (No Fault Tolerance)?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_019_A = "RAID 0 is the fault tolerance level in which there is no data protection. Data is distributed across all of the physical disks. RAID 0 requires a minimum of 1 physical disk in the array on which the logical drive is to be created.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_020_Q = "Why is a RAID level not available for selection on this screen?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_021_Q = "Why does the number of proposed logical drives vary based on my choices?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_022_Q = "What is an array?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_022_A = "An array is a set of physical drives that forms a foundation which can hold one or more logical drives.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_023_Q = "What is a spare?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_023_A = "A spare is a physical disk that is assigned to a set of logical drives configured with fault tolerance. In the event that one of the drives composing a fault tolerant logical drive fails, the spare will take over. Multiple spares can be shared by multiple arrays.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_024_Q = "Why do some of my logical drives not show a spare?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_024_A = "Spares are assigned based on the size of the physical disks composing a logical drive. If a logical drive is not configured for fault tolerance, or if the spare is too small for the physical disks in the logical drive, a spare will not be assigned to that logical drive.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_025_A = "It shows how the current controller configuration is affected by the tasks you have performed. This configuration is not committed to the hardware until you click \"Finish\" on this screen.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_026_Q = "What happens if I save?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_026_A = "The proposed configuration will be committed to the controller and you can begin using the new logical drive(s).";
PX_TAG_FAQ_027_Q = "What happens if I do not save?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_027_A = "If you do not save the configuration, the controller configuration will remain unchanged from its initial configuration.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_028_Q = "Am I done?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_029_A = "It shows how the current controller configuration of your controller.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_030_Q = "What is a physical drive?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_030_A = "A physical drive (or physical disk) is a hard disk drive that can be connected to a controller and used for storage of data.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_031_Q = "What do "Back", "Next", and "Cancel" do?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_032_A = "It shows a graphical representation of the configuration of your controller.  Items in bold have changed since the last save.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_033_Q = "Why don't I see all of my arrays which do not already have spares assigned?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_033_A = "You can only select arrays which can accept one of the available drives as a spare.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_034_Q = "Why can I only select some of my unused drives?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_034_A = "A spare assigned to an array must be at least as large as the smallest drive in the array.  Only drives which qualify as a spare on this array are listed.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_035_Q = "Why do I see a drive which was already assigned as a spare to another array?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_035_A = "The same spare drive can be assigned to multiple arrays.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_036_Q = "What does "Finish" do?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_037_Q = "What if I do not like what I did?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_037_A = "You can either click "Back" to change previous settings in the configuration task, or click "Cancel" to discard the changes in the configuration task.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_038_Q = "What happens when I select a drive?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_038_A = "Drives which have been checked will be added to the new array.  The configuration view is updated each time a drive is checked to show the effect of adding the drive to the array.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_039_Q = "Why do I sometimes see less space in the array than the total of all drive sizes in the array?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_039_A = "When adding drives to an array, try to group drives of the same size together.  The amount of space on a physical drive in an array that can be used for logical drives is only as large as the smallest physical drive in the array.  e.g. If you create an array with two 9.1 GB drives, and an 18.2 GB drive, only the first 9.1 GBs of the 18.2 GB drive will be available.  Thus you will have 27.3 GB of available space.  The other 9.1 GB of space on the 18.2 GB drive is wasted.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_040_Q = "What happens to the spare drive I remove?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_040_A = "If a spare drive is no longer assigned as a spare to any array, it will become available for either creating new arrays, or expanding existing arrays.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_041_Q = "What will happen to arrays I delete?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_041_A = "All logical drives in the array will be deleted, and all physical drives in the array will become available for creating new arrays. Any information on the logical drives in the array will be deleted.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_042_Q = "What does expansion do?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_042_A = "Expansion allows you to add physical drives to an existing array. The data will be restriped across all of the physical drives in the new array, and extra space will become available for creating new drives.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_043_Q = "Why should I expand an array?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_043_A = "There are many reasons why you might want to expand an array. Performance is generally better when there is a larger number of drives in an array.  Also, becuase there will be a larger number of physical drives in the array, logical drives created in the new space can possibly be created at a higher RAID level.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_044_Q = "Is expansion reversible?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_044_A = "No.  Once you have committed the expansion to the controller, it can not be reversed.  The data on the existing drives in the array is  restriped across all drives in the expanded array.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_045_Q = "What happens to the physical drives I add to the array?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_045_A = "The physical drives added to the array become a part of the array. The data on the existing drives in the array is restriped across all drives in the expanded array.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_046_Q = "What happens if I choose expand?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_046_A = "Expansion allows the configuration utility to add physical drives to an existing array.  The data that is currently on the array will be spread across the new phyical drives in the array, and new space will be available to create more logical drives.  Choosing expansion requires the controller to rearrange the data on the physical drives.  Although I/O can continue to the logical drive while the expansion occurs, newly  created logical drives will not be available until the expansion is complete.  Expansion is recommended, as it allows logical drives with higher fault tolerance levels to be created.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_047_Q = "What happens if I choose to create new arrays?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_047_A = "If you choose the option to create new arrays, physical drives that were not previously assigned to an array will be used to create new arrays and new logical drives.  In addition, unused space on any existing arrays will also be used to create logical drives. Selecting this option will mean all of your logical drives will be available immediately.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_048_Q = "Why does the configuration sometimes show more than 1 new logical drive when I click on different choices?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_049_Q = "Why should I allow logical drives to be migrated?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_049_A = "Selecting migrate logical drives allows the configuration utility to create larger arrays which means logical drives with higher fault tolerance levels can be created in the new space.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_050_Q = "Why would I not want to migrate to RAID 5/RAID ADG?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_051_A = "Select a task that you want to perform by clicking on it.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_052_A = "Click on "Main Menu" to return to the configuration method selection screen.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_053_Q = "How do I finish configuring my controller after I have made changes?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_053_A = "If you like the configuration changes you have made, click on "Save" in the center of the screen to save the configuration to the hardware.  The "Save" link is only available when there are unsaved changes on the controller.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_054_Q = "How do I undo the changes that I have made?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_054_A = "If you do not like the configuration changes you have made, click on "Discard Changes" in the center of the screen to undo the changes. The configuration view will revert back to the existing configuration of the controller.  The "Discard Changes" link is only available when there are unsaved changes on the controller.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_055_Q = "Why are some tasks not available for selection?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_055_A = "A task is not available for selection when it is not possible with the current configuration.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_057_Q = "Why can't I expand, extend, or migrate on my controller when the cache is disabled?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_058_Q = "Will my data still be accessible during a migration, extension, and/or expansion?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_058_A = "Yes, but the performance of the drives might be a little slower during this period.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_059_Q = "How can I monitor the status of an expansion, migration, extension, or rebuild?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_060_Q = "What does "Controller Settings" allow me to do?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_060_A = ""Controller Settings" allows you to adjust the controller level settings, including expand priority, rebuild priority, cache ratios, and the fibre ID (on Fibre Channel Controllers).";
PX_TAG_FAQ_061_Q = "What does \"clear configuration\" do?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_061_A = "All logical drives, arrays and settings configured on this controller are removed and the controller is restored to its default state.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_062_Q = "Can I undo a \"clear configuration\"?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_062_A = "No, once you have cleared the configuration and saved to the controller, you can not undo it.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_063_Q = "What is unused space?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_063_A = "Unused space is space on an array which has not yet been used to create a logical drive.  The amount listed is the total amount that is available for creating new logical drives.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_064_Q = "Why is the maximum size of a logical drive sometimes less than the total amount of unused space?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_064_A = "When a logical drive is created with fault tolerance (any fault tolerance level other than RAID 0), a portion of the unused space is used for data protection.  The amount that is used for data protection, and thus the amount free to create a new logical drive, depends on the fault tolerance level selected.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_065_Q = "What is stripe size?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_065_A = "Stripe size determines the size of the blocks of data that are striped across a logical drive.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_066_Q = "What is "Max Boot"?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_066_A = "Max boot determines the number of sectors used for the logical drive.  When "Max Boot" is disabled, the logical drive is created with 32 sectors per track.  In this configuration, the largest boot drive which can be created is 4 GB.  With "Max Boot" enabled, the controller creates the logical drive with 63 sectors per track which will allow you to create a boot drive which is up to 8 GB in size.  We suggest only enabling "Max Boot" on the drive from which you will boot your server, as a slight performance gain is seen using 32 sectors per track.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_067_Q = "Why does the created logical drive sometimes show a slightly different size than what I specified?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_067_A = "The logical drive size is automatically adjusted to some boundary values for efficiency reasons.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_068_Q = "What does the array accelerator do?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_068_A = "The array accelerator is useful in increasing performance in database and fault tolerant configurations. It increases performance by reading/writing data to/from the cache memory rather than directly to the logical drives. The system can access this cache memory many times faster than accessing disk storage. The amount of cache memory used for reading vs. writing depends on the cache ratio setting of the controller.  Controllers without battery-backed cache will not allow cache to be used for writing in order to protect the integrity of the data.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_069_Q = "What happens to a logical drive that I delete?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_069_A = "The space which was used for the logical drive will become avaialble for other logical drives, and all data on the logical drive will be lost.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_070_Q = "What is the expand priority?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_070_A = "Expand priority determines the rate at which a logical drive restripes the information on a new physical drive when it is  added to an array.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_071_Q = "How should I set the expand priority?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_071_A = "The higher the setting of expand priority, the faster the drive is restriped, at the expense of normal I/O.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_072_Q = "What is the rebuild priority?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_072_A = "Rebuild priority determines the rate at which a logical drive rebuilds the information on a new physical drive when a failed drive is replaced.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_073_Q = "How should I set the rebuild priority?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_073_A = "The higher the setting of rebuild priority, the faster the drive is rebuilt, at the expense of normal I/O.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_074_Q = "What is the cache ratio?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_074_A = "The cache ratio determines what percentage of cache on the controller is used for read cache and what percentage is used for write cache.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_075_Q = "What is the "RAID Array ID"?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_075_A = "The "RAID Array ID" is a name you can use to identify a RAID Array chassis.  This name will be saved in the memory of the RAID Array controller.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_076_Q = "What does it mean to migrate a logical drive?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_076_A = "Migrating a logical drive means changing its fault tolerance or stripe size without affecting the data on the logical drive.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_077_Q = "Why is a RAID level supported by my controller not available for selection on this screen?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_078_Q = "What is Selective Storage Presentation (SSP)?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_078_A = "Selective Storage Presentation allows logical drives on an array controller to be shared by multiple servers. A server connects to the array controller by using a host controller that is installed in the server. Selective Storage Presentation allows users to name connections from host controllers to array controllers, and it allows users to grant or deny access to connections for each logical drive. Selective Storage Presentation is currently supported only for fibre channel controllers.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_079_Q = "How should I assign Selective Storage Presentation?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_079_A = "Logical drives should not be accessed by more than one server running an operating system that was not designed to share logical drives. Consult your operating system documentation for more information.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_080_Q = "Can multiple operating systems be used with Selective Storage Presentation?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_080_A = "Yes. However, it is important to consult your operating system documentation if you intend to share logical drives between servers with different operating systems. If the logical drive is being shared between different operating systems, make sure that the operating systems support logical drive sharing with each other. If the operating systems do not support logical drive sharing with each other, make sure that the logical drive is only given access to servers with the same operating system. This prevents the different operating systems from corrupting the data on the logical drive. Consult your operating system documentation for more information.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_082_Q = "What happens to a logical drive after extension?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_082_A = "After extension, the logical drive size is increased without data loss.";


PX_TAG_FAQ_059_A = "You can monitor the status of an operation on the controller by clicking on the Logical Drive that is currently undergoing the desired task and obtaining More Information for that drive.  Clicking the refresh link will start a rebuild operation as opposed to an extension, expansion, or migration which start immediately after changes have been saved.  Clicking refresh also updates the controller view with the latest status of the controller.";

// SS550p1(Phoenix) translations

PX_TAG_FAQ_081_Q = "Why are some connections already checked/unchecked?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_081_A = "For RA4000/4100 controllers,  the list of connections with access is maintained even when SSP is disabled for the logical drive. Therefore, if SSP was previously enabled on this logical drive for some connections and you are re-enabling it now, those connections which had access before will already be checked when you enter this screen. For all other controllers, the list of connections with access will be cleared when disabling SSP for the controller. Therefore, if you disabled SSP and are now enabling it, no connections will be checked."
PX_TAG_FAQ_018_Q = "What is RAID 1+0 (Drive Mirroring)?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_020_A = "A RAID level is not displayed as a choice for selection when it is not possible with the current configuration. This can occur because RAID ADG requires 4 or more physical disks, RAID 5 requires 3 or more physical disks, and RAID 1+0 requires an even number of physical disks. Additionally, RAID ADG is only available on controllers which contain the RAID ADG Enabler.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_021_A = "This is a result of the current configuration that exists on your controller and can happen for multiple reasons: 1. Like sized physical disks are grouped together.  There may be more than one array created if all of your physical disks are not the same size.  2. You may have chosen RAID 1+0 as your fault tolerance, which requires an even number of physical disks to be grouped together.  If you have an odd number of physical disks, the odd drive can be used to create another logical drive.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_048_A = "This is a result of the current configuration that exists on your controller and can happen for multiple reasons. 1. You may have physical disks with different sizes. In order to use the entire space available on physical disks, logical drives have to be distributed across groups of the same size physical disks. 2. You may have chosen RAID 1+0 which only uses an even number of physical disks.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_050_A = "If you chose to create a RAID 1+0 logical drive for a specific reason, you might not want to migrate to RAID 5/RAID ADG.  Also, performing a migration requires the controller to rearrange data on the physical drives.  Although I/O can still occur to the existing logical drives during this time, the newly created logical drives will not be available until this operation is complete.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_077_A = "A RAID level is not displayed as a choice for selection when it is not possible with the current configuration. This can occur for one of the following reasons: 1. There is not enough disks on the array. For e.g. RAID 5 requires 3 or more physical disks and RAID 1+0 requires an even number of physical disks. 2. There is not enough space available for the fault tolerance. 3. There is an unsaved configuration that prevents the migration to the RAID level. Save the current configuration and then try to migrate to the desired RAID level. If none of the above cases apply, try to first migrate to the desired stripe-size and then to the desired RAID level. ";

PX_TAG_FAQ_084_Q = "What are the differences between SSP for RA4000/4100 controllers and other controllers?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_084_A = "For RAID Array 4000/4100 Controllers, SSP is enabled or disabled on a logical drive basis. Disabling SSP for a logical drive means that access to that logical drive is unrestricted. If you enable SSP for a logical drive, you will be able to restrict access to the logical drive. For all other controllers that support SSP, SSP is enabled or disabled on a controller basis. Disabling SSP for a controller means that access to all logical drives on the controller is unrestricted. If you enable SSP for the controller, you will be able to restrict access to the logical drives on the controller.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_600_Q = "What do "Next", and "Cancel" do?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_600_A = "Throughout the Switch configuration process: "Next" processes your choices on the current step and takes you to the next step of the configuration process. "Cancel" discards the proposed configuration and returns you to the Main Menu selection screen.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_601_Q = "What do "Back" and "Cancel" do?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_601_A = "Throughout the Switch configuration process: "Back" undoes your changes on the current configuration step and takes you back to the previous step. "Cancel" discards the proposed configuration and returns you to the Main Menu selection screen.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_602_Q = "What do "Back" and "Finish" and "Cancel" do?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_602_A = ""Back" undoes your changes on the current configuration step and takes you back to the previous step. "Finish" saves the configuration to the Switch. "Cancel" discards the proposed configuration and returns you to the Main Menu selection screen.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_603_Q = "How do I begin to Configure my Switch?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_603_A = "Select the Switch you would like to configure from those listed and then click "Next".";

PX_TAG_FAQ_604_Q = "The Switch I am trying to configure is not listed.";
PX_TAG_FAQ_604_A = "Make sure the correct controller has been selected before entering the Switch Configuration Task from the Main Menu and that the Switch or switches are correctly installed.  You will only be able to configure the Switches that are available on the currently selected controller.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_605_Q = "What is the difference between using ACU to configure my Switch or using the Switch Configuration Utility?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_605_A = "Configuring the Switch with the Utility will only be a viable option once the Switch has been configured at least once and is Active.  Once the Switch has a vaild configuration, you will have the option to continue to use ACU or to spawn the Switch Configuration Utility.  The advantage to using the Utility is that it provides advanced features and controls over your Switch whereas the advantage to using ACU is that it is more readily available, since ACU is used to set up the controller itself.  In addition, to use the Switch Configuration Utility, you must make sure that your system has been properly setup to do so.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_606_Q = "When I choose to use the Switch Configuration Utility, why am I returned to the Main Menu?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_606_A = "This is to avoid the possibility of trying to configure the Switch with the Utility and ACU simultaneously.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_607_Q = "I currently have I/O operations being performed on Logical Volumes/Drives that are on the controller containing the Switch I am trying to configure...What should I do?";

PX_TAG_FAQ_608_Q = "What constitutes valid data for the various Switch Configuration parameter fields?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_608_A = "For the IP, Gateway, and Subnet Mask fields the data must fall in the numeric range from 0 to 255 for each subfield.  For the Read and Write Community string fields valid data consists of an empty or blank field or alphanumeric characters (a-z,A-Z,0-9).";

PX_TAG_FAQ_609_Q = "What does the Switch Position mean?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_609_A = "This value represents the Switch's physical position in the controller.  These values work from the assumption that the controller is mounted horizontally and labels the position as either Left or Right.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_610_Q = "Am I done?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_610_A = "Yes. Your switch configuration has been saved.  You will now be returned to the main screen where you can select other tasks. If you would like to use the Switch Configuration Utility to set up detailed switch parameters, then you can come back to the Switch Configuration task and launch the Switch Configuration Utility.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_612_Q = "What does it mean when the Switch is considered Inactive?";

PX_TAG_FAQ_613_Q = "Why is the Switch Configuration Utility option not available at all times?";

PX_TAG_FAQ_614_Q = "Why is RAID 4 not listed as an option in Express Configuration?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_614_A = "Express Configuration by default provides the best overall configuration suggestions for your controller and therefore lists RAID 5 as a fault tolerance choice over RAID 4 since it offers more without the drawbacks of RAID 4.  ACU does allow you to choose RAID 4 instead of RAID 5, but you must use either Standard Configuration or Configuration Wizards to accomplish this task.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_615_Q = "How many logical drives can exist on a controller?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_615_A = "A controller can have a maximum of 32 logical drives.";

PX_TAG_FAQ_616_Q = "How many arrays can exist on a controller?";

PX_TAG_FAQ_617_Q = "Why is a RAID level not available for selection on this screen?";
PX_TAG_FAQ_617_A = "Express Configuration will optimally configure your controller by grouping same-sized physical disks into arrays. There may be more than one array created if all of your physical disks are not the same size. A RAID level is not displayed as a choice for selection when it is not possible with the current configuration. RAID ADG requires 4 or more physical disks in an array.

PX_TAG_FAQ_618_A = "Using more than 14 drives in an array increases the likelihood of multiple drive failures. A failure of two or more drives will result in data loss for all data on the logical drive. NOTE: Using between 14 and 28 drives is a medium risk while using more than 29 drives on an array is a high risk.  Therefore, the Express task provides the optimal choice for the available number of physical drives.";

All that has happened is that the drives status has been changed to OK and can once again be used to store new data.  NOTE: If the raid level of the failed logical drive(s) is RAID 0, the drive(s) will remain failed even after adding a spare.  To restore RAID 0 logical drives the system must be rebooted.";
