Environment

Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 2
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 3

Situation

Unable to add replacement for failed device to the software RAID when in "Not In Sync" state
Error "514 Unable to expand the RAID device"

Resolution

Fixed in NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 4

Additional Information

If the server is rebooted after a drive in the RAID fails and before a device is added back to the RAID, the error occurs when attempting to add the device back to the RAID.  A RAID with a failed device shows a "Degraded Mode" state prior to reboot and a "Not In Sync" state after reboot.
