Fedora 16 keeps reporting one of my drives as bad. I pulled the disk out of my array and ran several test onto it, but all seems fine so I will ignore the warning. The problem I have now is that the disk doesn't want to be re-added into /dev/md0
First off, I failed and removed the drive:
mdadm /dev/md0 --fail /dev/sdd1
mdadm /dev/md0 -r /dev/sdd1
When trying to re-add it I get this:
mdadm /dev/md0 -a /dev/sdd1
mdadm: /dev/sdd1 reports being an active member for /dev/md0, but a --re-add fails.
mdadm: not performing --add as that would convert /dev/sdd1 in to a spare.
mdadm: To make this a spare, use "mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdd1" first.
I do not want it to become a spare but a active drive again.
Where am I going wrong?
