Replace failed HDD in pfsense gmirror
Today I accessed pfsense interface and - by my surprise - I discovered the array was degraded.
I haven't received any email notification which I suppose it's quite strange.
Anyway I'll have to go fetch another HDD to replace the failed one.
How to perform this? I mean recreate partitions (possibly by copying the layout from the surviving disk), setup mirror, sync/refresh, …
Thank you for your help ;)
Should really be as simple as
gmirror status (note which drive failed) gmirror forget pfSenseMirror gmirror remove pfSenseMirror ad? shutdown -h <replace failed="" disk="">gmirror insert pfSenseMirror ad? gmirror status (check if rebuild started)</replace>
(Replace ad? with the failed HDD node.)
