Dell R720 showing 3 foreign drives

  • I have a Dell R720 with 1 Failed drive and 3 showing as Foreign

    8 x 15k SAS in RAID6

    ESXi 5.5 installed

    1 foreign disk is currently rebuilding

    How do I get the foreign disks into the Virtual Disk without wiping the array ?

  • Was there a solution? I have a R720xd with 2 foreign drives in  a OS mirror, is it all done or can I get these back on line ( that option is greyed out  )
