Broken Hard DiskProblem: One of the disks in your software RAID-1 array has failed.


Check the status of your software raid array:
[[email protected]] mdadm --misc --detail /dev/md0

Remove the failed disk from the array set. Be careful not to remove the wrong one!
[[email protected]] mdadm --manage /dev/md0 --remove /dev/sdb1

Physically replace the faulty disk unit with a replacement which is identical to, or larger than the failed disk. Partition the new disk so that the partitions are equal to, or larger than, the size of the partitions on the healthy disk using fdisk.

Add the new disk to your software RAID-1 array:
[[email protected]] mdadm --manage /dev/md0 --add /dev/sdb1

The array should rebuilt automatically, but you can monitor its progress with:
[[email protected]] mdadm --misc --detail /dev/md0
