Rebuilding, Waiting for Mount

I have an M1 iMac with a RAID 5 array in a Thunderbay4. I tried to follow the directions to upgrade a 3T drive to a 5T drive (the first to upgrade the whole set) and the RAID won't mount to start the rebuild process. I understand that the directory is probably corrupted. 

What's the best way to fix this? I have duplicate Time Machine backups on separate drives.

Thanks!

Attach a SoftRAID tech support file, so I can check whether this is a directory issue, or a driver loading issue.

@softraid-support, Late last night I noticed that the drive did, in fact, mount, and this morning the RAID array showed the new drive had been rebuilt. Thank you for responding to my inquiry.

Was this figured out? Did it just automatically mount? I'm rebuilding separate drives as I upgrade storage, and SoftRaid seems to start rebuilding after I restart my computer and then goes to "Rebuilding, waiting for mount" after that. Does it just automatically fix itself after some time? I have an M1 Mini with Thunderbay8 and SoftRaid XT.

Is your volume mounting? the volume must be mounted (without a mac OS 'your volume is damaged and mounted read only' error) normally, then it will rebuild.

It is mounted, yes. It also seems to have fixed itself with about fifteen minutes of waiting, and is now rebuilding.
