I will admit that the MegaCli utility does not have great documentation, but I have found some and added my own. If anyone is interested in MegaCli command line info, pls contact me and I will send the documentation I have.

+1 that. The MegaCli makes no effort to be user friendly or provide
anything remotely like a clear error message. Anytime I end up using
it, the help is no help, and I have to search online for command
examples before I can get anything done. I just had a drive die here
and it was honestly faster and easier for me to simply reboot and use
the RAID BIOS.
