For VNX1 Series, use the following commands to copy data from online disk 0_1_5 to any hotspare available:

>> naviseccli –h <SP_IPaddress> copytohotspare 0_1_5 –initiate

***If command above does not work, attempt the following command***

>> naviseccli -h <SP_IPaddress> -user <username> -password <password> copytohotspare 0_1_5 –initiate

note: Default username and password are sysadmin, sysadmin. If for some reason this does not work, request customer for username and password.

**To verify that disk is actually copying to hotspare use command:

>> naviseccli getdisk <disk location>

*** If sometime the above naviseccli command does not work, use naviseccli.exe instead of naviseccli.
