Hello, First off sorry for the cross-post. I typically don't do this but this is an important question, so please bear with me. I'm just trying to get more eyes on the subject so I can (maybe) get a reply quicker... I'm running 8-CURRENT on my machine and it appears that one of the disks in my RAID5 array has taken a nose dive (BIOS recognizes that it exists, but Intel Matrix Manager claims that the disk is an "Offline Member"). After doing some reading it appears that it's kaput, so I need to get a replacement disk to fix this one... That aside, I need to determine how to rebuild the array in a Unix environment because Intel only provides instructions for how to use their Windows matrix manager. If anyone can point me to some links or provide me with some pointers on how to correct this issue, I'd owe you a lot; in fact the next time you come by Santa Cruz, CA I'll gladly treat you to some beers or something else you might want :)... Linux solutions (if there isn't a proper one for FreeBSD) are valid, as long as the core data remains uncorrupted and I can do what I need to from a LiveCD. I'm just scared to boot up OS and have it do some irrevocable operation like fsck -y and assume parity errors are ok or something along those lines (I don't remember if I set rc.conf to fsck -y and I know I can change that from single-user mode, but I want to play things conservatively if at all possible) :\... Filesystem is UFS2 with softupdates of course. Point proven that I need to backup my data more often :(... TIA, -Garrett
