well now I really need advice, the data centre guy successfully inserted another
disk in the right place and it appears to be the same model. However, smartctl
-a /dev/ad4 seems to show a number of errors and many of the indicators are
prefail or old_age.
In addition the disk doesn't have exactly the same length so when I tried to
insert gmirror complains that it is too small.
What are my options?
