Disk Rebuild, triggered by disk failure, is a common problem in a virtualized storage environment.


Disk Rebuild discovery and monitoring relies on EMC M&R discovery.

To manage Disk Rebuild, it is required to discover and monitor the topology in a storage array. This includes:

  • LUN and their relationship to RAID Groups and storage pools.

  • RAID Groups, Storage Pools and their relationships to physical disks.

    The following classes support Disk Rebuild management:

  • PhysicalDisk on page 131

  • SparePhysicalDisk on page 132

  • RAIDGroup on page 133

  • RAIDGroup on page 133

    By managing Disk Rebuild, Server Manager is able to show the impact of Disk Rebuild on the performance of the Virtual Machine.
