Software RAID Setup
I've put a question up sometime ago about this issue and no one responded. I cannot believe no one knows what to do to solve this issue, but here it goes again. . .
I have a Compaq SCSI, 7 drive array attached to my Linux server. One of the drives I originally installed was defective and had to be replaced.
So, when I did my install of Linux originally, I only mounted 6 drives. Now, all of the drives are working fine. However, the 7th drive is not being mounted into the RAID array. I adjusted the raidtab and etc/fstab files to account for the 7th drive but I know that no data is being written to it.
What I had to do before to solve this problem was blow away the install and start over again. However, that is a major pita and I don't really want to do that.
If someone has any ideas as to how to install a drive into a RAID array after Linux has been installed, please help me. Thanks.
