Areca test 3


check if the controller does auto rebuild

Test steps

  • there was a running rebuild, so i first powered off

 init 0

  • the drive in rebuild was exchanged against the drive, that i damaged in Areca test 2 ( see areca_test_2 )
the drive was rescued and than underwent fdisk and mkfs.ext3 commands


after power turn on

  • Areca said: RaidSet Degraded

  • the drive was found, but marked: Free

conclusion: one can not simply exchange a broken drive. somewhere on the drive should be Areca information

  • after replacing of that drive, with the one involved in the particular rebuild Areca said: RaisSet needs rebuild

  • the rebuild started automatically, when there was a reed need during the system boot

  • the rebuild started where it has been broken
