Patent Number: 8,819,522

Title: Storage device array system, information processing apparatus, storage device array control method, and program

Abstract: A disk array apparatus, if a rebuild error occurs, stores information indicating an error occurrence place in a sector holding unit, and then stops rebuild processing. A host computer, if a rebuild error occurs in the disk array apparatus, acquires the information indicating the error occurrence place from the disk array apparatus. The host computer determines whether the rebuild error does not obstruct continuation of the rebuild processing based on the acquired information indicating the error occurrence place. If it is determined that the rebuild error does not obstruct continuation of the rebuild processing, the host computer instructs the disk array apparatus to resume the rebuild processing while skipping the error occurrence place. In response to the instruction from the host computer, the disk array apparatus resumes the rebuild processing while skipping the error occurrence place.
