I have a one linux box on IBM hardware with Raid 5 using 3 HDD.
Last week one hdd crashed and server going to reconstruction mode, now I'm not able to take terminal access. Kindly suggest me the steps how can i change HDD without restarting server.
I have a SuperMicro box with an Areca RAID controller installed. The RAID controller is configured for RAID 6 + Hot Spare. I am attempting to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I set up LVM with separate partitions for /, /var, swap, and /data.
