I'm using RAIDframe (level 1) on a 3.99.3 i386 system with two IDE disks.
Becuase of a problem I was having with one of the drives, and decided to
switch the drives. Luckily I had a spare, so I could do this by
- replacing drive A (original wd0) with the spare
- reconstructing onto the spare
- replacing drive B (original wd1) with drive A
- reconstructin onto drive A
- replacing the spare with drive B
- reconstructing onto drive B
The toughest part of this process was to not mix the drives while switching
Eventually everything went fine; however, while reconstructing the disks
I noticed a problem: the first time I reconstructed, the progress bar
stalled at 29% and ETA constantly increased until reconstruction eventually
succeeded. During the other two reconstructions, the progress bar always
printed 0% and ETA 0:00 until it completed. However, reconstruction was
always successful (AFAICT), and never took longer than expected.
What could be the source if this problem?
