Re: Recontruction a failed raid array on root
Well we cannot run raidhotadd to add the new partition because the root file
system is already mounted so we get disk busy error.

Subject: Re: Recontruction a failed raid array on root
We have a server running raid 1 mirroring and one of the HDD failed.
We have since replaced
the failed drive and have re-constructed 2 out of the 3 raid arrays.
The problem we are having is
with re-contructing the raid array runnning on the root partition.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It should be straightforward, what problem(s) did you encounter?
Basically make a matching partition using fdisk, set the type to fd,
tell the raid about it now being available and watch it sync.
Show me the /etc/raidtab file, outputs from,
the syntax of the raidhotadd command you used
