I had a drive fail so i replaced it with a Western digital RE3 same size drive as the others speed ect. I then cleared the Meta data and set it as a global spare and two days later it hasnt been added to the raid. So i have removed it from a global spare and just left it as available and the raid still hasnt added it back it. Also restarted just incase.Am i missing a step somewhere?
Thanks in advance

The disk that is being used could be a incompatible drive. please refer P2000G3 quickspecs to identify compatible disks with MSA.
refer pg no 32.
Reason : HP uses custom firmware on drives associated with a storage array non HP disks may not work well with this storage product.
