Delete an Offline RAID6 virtual drive and create a new one with AVAGO storcli

Offline virtual device means it cannot be used because the missing or bad or failed disks are more than the fault tolerance it is offering. In this case, there is a RAID 6 on a AVAGO MegaRAID 3018 controller with 2 x RAID6 virtual drives with 6 disks each. One of the virtual drives misses 3 of the 6 disks in the group, so this virtual drive is in Offline state and it cannot be repaired. Three new disks are put to replace the failed disks. Here is what command to issue with the AVAGO command-line utility storcli under CentOS 7 to delete and then create a healthy new RAID 6 virtual drive:

  1. Delete the Offline virtual drive.
  2. Create a new RAID 6 virtual drive with 6 disks.
  3. Initialize the newly create virtual drive to make it consistent.

On each step, it is included additional show storcli commands to better preset what happens in reality and how the controller reflects the changes.
The initial state of the whole configuration is shown below:

[root@srv ~]# /opt/MegaRAID/storcli/storcli64 /c0 show

STEP 1) Delete the Offline virtual drive.

Delete the first virtual drive, which is “/c0/v0” using storcli:

[root@srv ~]# /opt/MegaRAID/storcli/storcli64 /c0/v0 del
CLI Version = 007.0709.0000.0000 Aug 14, 2018
Operating system = Linux 3.10.0-957.1.3.el7.x86_64
Controller = 0
Status = Success
Description = Delete VD succeeded

Because the virtual drive has been already in Offline state and the data on it is lost, there is no confirmation when deleting such device. So be careful when executing DELETE command on a such virtual drive.
And the result may be shown with the storcli show:

[root@srv ~]# /opt/MegaRAID/storcli/storcli64 /c0 show

Now, there are 6 hard drives in UGood state, which means they are ready to be used in a new RAID setup.

STEP 2) Create a new RAID 6 virtual drive with 6 disks.

Create the RAID 6 virtual drive with 6 hard drives, enabled Write-Back (i.e. caching writes) and Stripe Size 1024Kbytes, which is 1Mbyte.

[root@srv ~]# /opt/MegaRAID/storcli/storcli64 /c0 add vd r6 Size=all name=storage1 drives=8:0-1,2,3,4,5 WB Strip=1024
CLI Version = 007.0709.0000.0000 Aug 14, 2018
Operating system = Linux 3.10.0-957.1.3.el7.x86_64
Controller = 0
Status = Success
Description = Add VD Succeeded

Enumerating the disks is in this format Enclosure_Number:disk_1,disk_2….disk_N
The create command succeeded and the new virtual drive is again with number 0, so /c0/v0:

[root@srv ~]# /opt/MegaRAID/storcli/storcli64 /c0/v0 show all

The problem here is that the virtual drive is not initialized, which should be done on every new virtual drive! A background initialization may occur if the controller is set so, but it is better to start manually a foreground initialization.
If disks are from different enclosures – storcli with multiple disks from different enclosures.

STEP 3) Initialize the newly create virtual drive to make it consistent.

The virtual drive has been created, but as shown in the previous “storcli show” command it is not consistent. To be consistent and the controller to be sure of the healthy status of the virtual drive and its disks an initialization is needed. There two types of initialization – a background initialization (bgi in terms of storcli), which constructs a parity data from the current data on the disks and save them on them. And a (foreground) initialization, which means the controller will save zeros to all the disks.
Start foreground initialization with:

[root@srv ~]# /opt/MegaRAID/storcli/storcli64 /c0/v0 start init full
CLI Version = 007.0709.0000.0000 Aug 14, 2018
