A SparesMissing event had been detected on md device

  • For some unknown reason my array definition in mdadm.conf now contains the spares=1 directive, giving me notifications about spares missing.


    - How can this have happened, did OMV change this somehow? Is this a setting in the GUI?


    - What is the best way to correct it? Can I just change this back to 0 and be done, or will this be overwritten bij OMV again as the header of the file states:


    Code
    # This file is auto-generated by openmediavault (https://www.openmediavault.org)
    # WARNING: Do not edit this file, your changes will get lost.
    
    # mdadm.conf

    No and No


    If this is in the settings file then you have actively added it on your own via an mdadm command.


    OMV is only running a mdadm command to export the current state of the array to the config file.
