RAID1 software - 1 disk DEAD
Ok, I need help here!
I have a remote machine that has the following setup:
2x 250Gb SATA drive build in RAID 1 software using mdadm
Problem: 1 of the 2 disks is DEAD and needs to be replaced. I don't personally have access to the computer, but a person over there has access (he can put a new drive in, but don't have a clue on how to configure).
What is the procedure when you want to do such an operation? Simply put the disk and the RAID1 will sync again? This would be to good to be true!
We have configure the array using UUID does that need to be changed if new drive is inserted?
Do we need to repartition the drive?
