Hmmm, doesn't look good:

# atacontrol rebuild ar0
atacontrol: ioctl(ATARAIDREBUILD): Operation not supported by device

any other ideas?

Note that I used the Promise chip's firmware to initially build the mirror, so I trust that this is a "RAID capable ATA controller" (from the rebuild section of the atacontrol man page)

Thanks

Try rebuilding the array...

atacontrol rebuild ar0

See if that helps...

Hi

How do you tell which disk has problems in a hardware RAID1 array? My machine has been up for nearly six months, and only the last three weeks of messages logs are retained. There is nothing any in the last three weeks of system logs about any kind of hardware error, or warning, or anything mentioning ar0, ad4, or ad6.

atacontrol is showing a DEGRADED status of the mirror:

# atacontrol status ar0
ar0: ATA RAID1 subdisks: ad4 ad6 status: DEGRADED


How does one tell which disk is faulty? Or is it possible that they've become out of sync and need rebuilding, in which case which one do I detach and reattach?


I'm scared to reboot as it's a running server. What can I do????

Cheers

Jesse
