Unable to restore RAID-array..
Itīs currently setup as /dev/md4 in a RAID 1 for our AFS-volume..
Since the disks are not of equal size I tried to run:
sfdisk -d /dev/hdg | sfdisk /dev/hde (hde is the replaced disk which I want to sync up with hdg)
then raidhotadd /dev/md4 /dev/hde1
I get the error "Can not hot-add disk: invalid argument
If I try the opposite "raidhotadd /dev/hde1 /dev/md4" I get /dev/hde1 is not an md device, which seems correct.. Well, what is the correct argument? And howto get the partition table from /dev/hdg to /dev/hde and sync up the disks to create /dev/md4? The disks are not of identical size, although the replaced is bigger so it should be possible..
Greatful for any help..
