Sorry, not correct. When you replace a failed drive, the perc card doesn't know for certain that the new drive you're adding is meant to be a replacement. For all it knows, you could coincidentally be adding new disks for a new VirtualDevice which already contains data, during the failure state of some other device. So it will not automatically resilver (which would be a permanently destructive process, applied to a disk which is not *certainly* meant for destruction). You have to open the perc config interface, tell it this disk is a replacement for the old disk (probably you're just saying "This disk is the new global hotspare") or else the new disk will sit there like a bump on a log. Doing nothing. _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
