That will mark the drive as offline, put the pool into a degraded mode, and generally be less harmful to the system. Then figure out which disk to pull and remove it (doing it from a powered off state if needed). Install the new drive, configure it however it's needed, then use: zpool replace <poolname> <old device> <new device> > Next question is: I'm about to replace the 3 TB HDD with a more recent and > modern 4 TB > HDD (WD RED 4TB).

And it will keep the extra space as "usable in the future", so if you replace all the drives with 4 TB ones, the extra space will be added to the pool. -- Freddie Cash fjwc...@gmail.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
