Post this, the same cell disk goes into Predective Failure state.

At this time,
cellsrv will issue drop of griddisk at ASM side for the disks which are known to cellsrv,
and not for the disks which were dropped manually.

After the Disk Replacement,
Grid Disks which were dropped manually from the ASM DiskGroup, before the failure, will not be added back.
