I have a 1TB raid5 array of 3 disks running on Centos 6.2, and one disk got lost.(this a test bench of 3 usb hd)
When I try to reconnect the missing drive I get the error: ¨Error adding spare: mdadm exited with exit code 2: mdadmption --force not valid in manage mode¨
It seems like mdadm thinks I am about to add a spare, but I am not.
I am using Red Hat disk utility 2.30.1. The array is working with clients writing to it.
Any suggestions how to solve this?
