Remove the "SparesMissing event"

  • Remove the "SparesMissing event"

    If you receive an "SparesMissing event", here´s how to remove it by @SerErris.

    Example "SparesMissing event":

    The Problem

    In /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf you can find the entry for your md ARRAY:

    # definitions of existing MD arrays
    ARRAY /dev/md/storage metadata=1.2 [color=#FF0000][b]spares=1[/b] [/color]name=openmediavault:storage UUID=6a35a589:d9c8a30b:a61a95bf:XXXXXXXX

    As long as this line states "spares=1" the message will arrive, as mdadm looks after a spare disk.


    • Set the parameter to spares=0
    • Done. :thumbup:

    For example:

    BeforeARRAY /dev/md/storage metadata=1.2 spares=1 name=openmediavault:storage UUID=6a35a589:d9c8a30b:a61a95bf:XXXXXXXX
    AfterARRAY /dev/md/storage metadata=1.2 spares=0 name=openmediavault:storage UUID=6a35a589:d9c8a30b:a61a95bf:XXXXXXXX
