Subject:   What if one of the drives fail?

The article is good, simple to follow, but does not actually explain the procedure of replacing the hard disk if any one of them fails.


Someone has posted a similar question and it seems that no one (including the author) can answer it yet.


Googling it returns nothing either. Maybe because it is a new thing and not many people have implemented it yet.


What a shame.

    Actually "man gmirror" has some easy to follow examples if a drive fails. While I haven't had a drive fail, in my testing I physically removed a drive and the rebooted OS kept perking along. I then replaced the drive with an empty one and was successfully able to restore the mirror. One of those things that is better to try once on a test system rather than wait until an emergency :-)
