Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have created a raid5 volume with 3 raid devices, after that only i think about the hot spare. For that I increased the no: of raid devices using --grow, but how i can add the new raid device as a hot spare??
(1) what does mdadm -D /dev/md0 (or /dev/md1 or whatever your device is) output?
(2) Please ask the moderator to merge your now 3 or 4? threads on this subject together. You don't need to open a new thread when pursuing the same problem, and it makes it difficult for people to help or learn from the thread. Just click Report and ask nicely please.
