re: RaidFrame with unequal size replacements
I worry I may be "in a pickle" here. I have a sparc64, that has a
raidframe raid1. I lost a disk recently, and the replacement has
arrived, but appears to be a few sectors (143363688 vs 143538120)
smaller than the one it's replacing. and the pair in the raidframe.
So, the first question is, does raidframe know how to deal with
this? I doubt it, given that dynamically sized filesystems don't, as
far as I know, exist in NetBSD. The next question would be, any
suggestions on how to fix it? Only idea I have is to build a
secondary RAID1, with only one disk in it (the new smaller one), then
build a new system onto that, and then kill the old RAID making the
one remaining disk in it be the partner to the new disk in the new
RAID. But, I don't want to walk down that path without asking for
help. Maybe there's something easier I could do.
raidframe usually skips a few sectors for some alignment i'm not
sure about, but the above numbers are in the 200,000 sector range
and that's really significant.
i've done the create a new raid and copy over a bunch of times.
unless someone else has other ideas, i think this is all you can
really do at tihs point...
