so good. Began Ralf's procedure for inserting ad4s1 into mirror/gm0. The
synchronization began and reached 6% when this little horror appeared:
ad6: FAILURE - READ_DMA status=51<READY,DSC,ERROR> error=40<UNCORRECTABLE>
GEOM_MIRROR: Request failed (error=5). ad6s1[READ(offset=69018976256,
GEOM_MIRROR: Synchronization request failed (error=5).
your disk failed. (uncorrectable error)
assuming you eliminated other causes like drives overheating, cabling
problem (don't think so) etc.:
boot from some kind of live CD, then make another mirror (single disk now)
on other drive, then do
dd if=/dev/ad6s1 of=/dev/mirror/newmirror bs=2k conv=noerror,sync
i intentionally did bs=2k instead of larger, to minimize amount of lost
then change your system to boot from newmirror, take out /dev/ad6 and have
it replaced on warranty (or buy new), put new ad6, insert it to the
