Hello folks. I'm wondering if there's a way to configure hot spares
in a raidframe configuration such that when one of the primary components
fails, the hot spare is called into service without human intervention. I
realize I could write shell scripts to watch things and perform the change,
but I'm wondering if this mechanism is already built into the raidframe
subsystem, but is just not documented. For example, if I have
autoconfigure turned on with a raid5 set, will the hot spare be called into
service automatically if one of the components fails?
