Re: Disk Faild in RAID5


The various states are nicely explained on the manpage for sautil


Supposedly you just need a "start_recovery" command now:


"The sautil start_recovery command causes the Smart Array Controller to rebuild any logical drives that are in READY FOR RECOVERY OPERATION state. All logical drives in this state transition to RECOVERING. Heavy I/O to the controller can delay this transition. There is no adverse impact if this option is entered when no logical drives are in READY FOR RECOVERY OPERATION state."

It is not clear (to me) from your question whether you already issued that command.

hth,
Hein.

Re: Disk Faild in RAID5

I try to make sautil /dev/ciss2 start_recovery but the staus still at USING INTERIM RECOVERY MODE and do not change for READY FOR RECOVERY OPERATION.

My question is how can make change the status at READY FOR RECOVERY OPERATION.

Claude,

you must use the 'sautil' with the 'scan' option first to detect the newly inserted disk.
