I bought an IBM eSeries with 5 disks of 36GB each.
I would like to make a RAID5 out of it.
I want to know how can I detect if a disk has failed or needs to be changed. If one fails, does the system will continue to operate anyway? And how can I know which disk has failed? How does the system tell me which disk to change? And how can I monitor the disk rebuild and how can I know when the rebuild is done?
I have so much questions about this RAID thing, sorry :)
p.s.: Ill use Debian 6
