This is a hardware raid.
My motherboard is a Sabertooth x58 and i'm using the 6Gb/s sata ports
Marvell 885e91xx adapter

I wanted to test to see the raid was working so i disconnected one hdd add some info on the other hdd. Then turned off the computer and reconnected the other drive, then it showed:

Virtual Disk

Id Name Size Lvl Status Stripe Member
0 New VD 465GB Raid1 Degrade 64K 0
1 New VD 465GB Raid1 Degrade 64K 8

Physical Drive

ID Disk Name Size Speed
0 SATA WDC WD5002AALX 500 6Gb/s
8 SATA WDC WD5002AALX 500 6Gb/s

Now why do both drives show as degrade not just one. Also why did it change to 2 VD not just the one i set-up.
In this case it was a test so I knew which drive to rebuild but if this was an actual failure how would I know what drive had failed. The software that came with it also show both drives as degraded.

Now when I rebuilt the drive it shows up like this:

Id Name Size Lvl Status Stripe Member
0 New VD 465GB Raid1 Functional 64K 0, 8

Physical Drive

ID Disk Name Size Speed
0 SATA WDC WD5002AALX 500 6Gb/s
8 SATA WDC WD5002AALX 500 6Gb/s

Is this how it should be, sorry for all the question it's my first time setting up a Raid.
Thanks alot if you need anymore info just let me know.
