Ok, I looked at "man gmirror", but found nothing for my 5.2.1 system. As
you mentioned, gmirror is for 5.3 only.
I missed "man atacontrol", sorry for this. Now I've looked at its man page,
looks good. Only one problem: man page says that I can only rebuild an
RAID1 array on RAID capable ATA controllers. But I have no such "real" ATA
controller. How can I replace a faulty disk with atacontrol on a normal
ATA controller then?
Thanks for your help, Emanuel!
You don't know what it's like -- I'm the one out there every day
putting his ass on the line. And I'm not out of order! You're out of
order! The whole freaking system is out of order!
