RAID0 on Linux question
I have a faulty two-disk RAID0 setup on a Linux host where one of the drives has a number of "Other" errors (smartctl tells me it's been trying to reshuffle blocks for a while).
It nominally contains data that I can lose, but of course, I would like to rescue what I can. So far I have been able to force the drive online (MegaCli64 -PDOnline -PhysDrv [8:5] -aALL), reboot, mount the file system RO and attempt some more recovery.
However, waiting for the PowerEdge 2950 to reboot does take a while. Does anyone know if there are any ways of forcing the drive online without rebooting?
(If I do not reboot, the system complains about the fs.)
