Status degraded PERC 5/i

It's rebuilding the array (30% in). Until it's 100% rebuilt you'll have a degraded status. This can happen for a lot of reason, but most likely because a drive had been removed/disconnected. Once the rebuild is complete, the status will change to "online" or "optimal".

Subject: Status degraded  PERC 5/i

I get  the below message that the state of my raid controller is
degraded. All physical disks have status=ok, state=Online and none has
falure predicted. What does this mean? Do I need to fix this, and if so,
