replacing a failed RAID component
I'm using RAIDFRAME in a RAID 1 configuration. One of the disks has
failed and needs to be replaced; the question is how, precisely, I do
it. More specifically, how do I prepare the new disk? My assumption
is that I have to set up the proper fdisk label (including the boot
block); I then have to use disklabel to make the 'e' partition of type
RAID. The last thing I should do is use 'raidctl -R' to reconstruct
the RAID set.
Do I need to do anything else? Do I need to do something to
initialize the replacement disk's RAID stuff?
