comment Volume Rebuild Failure after disk replacement in HP MSA1500/MSA20
There are 12x500GB drives in each enclosure, in an 8TB/4TB LVM/EXT3 arrangement. Unfortunately I did not get to configure the RAID so there are no hot-spares (thanks vendor!), if we get a 2 disk failure we're back to the tape backups, and these have never been tested in anger. I daren't bring the system up until the new drive is in, so on controller/CLI repairs are all I am willing to attempt.
