    RAID problem

    Hi.
    I testing raid now on one of my computers and now when I removing a disk, whole system hangup.

    Exist some disk/raid check utility?

    Do I need to send mdadm.conf and raidtab ?

    ==My OS==
    Linux = Mandrake 10.1
    RAID Type = IDE on Q-tec 340R raid card (working but fully not supported by linux)
    // too far away outside of limit

    What kind of RAID is it (striped, mirror'd, RAID 5)? And is your system hot-swappable?

    It's very likely that the system won't run since the RAID is incomplete.

    It is RAID 1
    Both of disks are 10GB

    It worked and I could files on raid disks but then when I begun to simulate failure it is stopped to work but not from begining, I did it by removing power from disk.

    As I know IDE not supporting hot swap, but I conncted disk(that was disconnted) to Linux again efter power of it. And then usind "raidhotadd /dev/md0 /dev/hda1" in /proc/mdstat was showing when disk was recovered.

    Can mdadm run only programs or it can run .sh also?
    If so then how can I run script with mdadm?
    I traid switch --program=/myscript.sh
    Not working.
    (Script is simple. Dump mdadm detail log to txt and sending it to my email. Script working)
