CAUTION! The commands above assume that the drive in question is connected to Adapter 0. To ensure that you are issuing the commands against the correct adapter, it is recommended that you utilize the NetWitness RAID Utility script. See KB article How to Download and Use the RSA NetWitness RAID Utility for information on downloading and using the script.
