RAID problems cont

Sunday, April 29, 2012

So my RAID resync got a read error about 80% of the way through, and despite saying that the sync was complete the server has dropped the good disk from the RAID again. This is both stupid and incredibly annoying; if one disk has a read error then it’s the last one I would want to be active in the RAID, and a RAID1 with one disk and a spare is useless.

Looks like I’ll have to order two new disks, copy the data over from the failing disk to a new one and then build a new RAID array. What a pain in the ass.
