Swapping HDD's In RAID 10

  • Hello,

    Can anyone direct me to step by step instructions for swapping a drive in RAID 10? I have been running OMV for several years now and am thinking about putting new drives in, one at a time, to refresh the equipment.

    Thanks for any assistance,

  • I assume it is an mdadm array:

    Growing a mdadm RAID by replacing disks
    Growing RAID 6 with OMV (MDADM)

    Don´t forget to make a data backup before you proceed, because the rebuild process creates a lot of stress for the other disk(s).

    OMV 3.0.100 (Gray style)

    ASRock Rack C2550D4I C0-stepping - 16GB ECC - 6x WD RED 3TB (ZFS 2x3 Striped RaidZ1) - Fractal Design Node 304 -

    3x WD80EMAZ Snapraid / MergerFS-pool via eSATA - 4-Bay ICYCube MB561U3S-4S with fan-mod

  • Ok, I have added the OMV usb backup plugin and ordered a new drive/enclosure so I can run backups of my NAS to the external drive. Once I have all that setup, I will look into off-site storage and simply keep running my OMV data drives till they quit. At which point, I might just restore to a non raid environment?

    yes, mdadm
