Re: Rebuilding RAID 1 Array in Linux with a new hard disk after a disk fault - Howto with screen shots

Steven skrev:
How to identify which drive has failed in an array?

I have 6 disks, 4 are used in raid (mdadm), the other 2 contain /boot, /
and /home.
Each have 1 partition.
/dev/md0 (raid 1) consists of /dev/sdc1 and /dev/sdd1
/dev/md1 (raid 1) consists of /dev/sde1 and /dev/sdf1

If a drive fails, how do I know which drive? This is a desktop system, not
a server.

Just do "ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/". The disks will have factory labels with serial-numbers to match.
