Re: How to replace a failed HD?

How is the best safe way to remove a drive from the NAS. Should I remove it first from the array (mdadm --remove)? Should I run any commands before
shutting down the device and extract the disk?

About eximining the disk, do you mean checking it for bad sectors?

Re: How to replace a failed HD?

Well, this morning all the data is again accesible in /dev/md1 but the red light is still blinking. If I restart the NAS I'm sure it won't assemble the raid array again. In the web admin it says the same it was saying yesterday: There are 2 drives with existing data on your Iomega StorCenter ix2-200...

Re: How to replace a failed HD?

The box has detected a degraded array, and for that reason the red led is flashing (I guess). Now you have repaired the array behind the back of the firmware. I can imagine it didn't notice. I don't understand anything. I've restarted the device through the web interface. After being restarted the ...

Nop, I only verified that the data was there and I was happy with that LOL.

Ok, I'll do it today. Why should I reboot it?

Re: How to replace a failed HD?

Don't know why the firmware failed to do so. My first guess was a slightly too small disk, but that's not true. You'll need to use parted to create that partition. You can also use it to look a the partition table of the old disk: parted /dev/sda unit s print And then you can just add it to the cur...

Re: How to replace a failed HD?

It won't hurt, although the firmware sshould do it. And then you can add the partition to your existing array: mdadm --add /dev/md1 /dev/sdb2 I'm wondering why there is an sdb1 partition but not an sdb2, so why the firmware didn't create it? which could be the reason for that? As it looks like that...

No, it isn't, but there isn't a sdb2 partition.

How to replace a failed HD?

Hi, one of the 2TB drives failed so I've purchased a new one. Now I've put it into the device and a /dev/md0 20GB mirror has been created automatically, but the other (1.8TB) one not. What must I do?, I've tried to recreate the mirror device, but it gives me errors: root@ix2-200-D8S0EN:/# mdadm --cr...

Re: Everything looks to work fine but red light blinking

Fortunately now I have all the data, I don't know what happened but at least I can access everything again, but the other HD as you said might died. Is it possible to put the healthy disk on another linux NAS of another brand, then add another healthy disk and rebuild the array?, or everything is ve...

Re: Everything looks to work fine but red light blinking

Thank you Mijzelf, I'll do some work this afternoon with the array.

One question. If I buy another 2TB disk, which steps must I do to get the array working and reconstructed again?
