http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi there: Thanks for reading this thread and I thank you in advance for any help you can provide. So this is what happened... I noticed that my MDADM RAID 5 array with drives ordered: /dev/sd[EFGHIABCDKJ]1 reported a failed drive -- /dev/sdb1. I stopped the array and ran smartctl -t long /dev/sdb1 and received a pass. So I added /dev/sdb1 back to /dev/md0 with mdadm --add. In the process of rebuilding, /dev/sdh1 went offline (the data cable must have been knocked loose while I was moving from FL to MI) and now the array state is degraded. I checked both (HowTos)
