How To Add Spare Devices On Raid-1

In This Tutorial We Are Going To Learn How To Configure Spare Devices On Raid-1

Firstly You Have To Login With Localhost:-Root

Firstly We Have To Create Raid-1 And We Have To Join The Spare Devices With Raid-1

If We Join The Spare Devices With Raid-1 Then If Our 1 Hard disk Is Crash Or The Fault Come In The Hard Disk Then The Spare Devices Will Come To The Active Devices

Firstly We Have To Do The 4 Partition In The Hard Disk I Am Showing You In The Diagram

And Now Do This Type 4 Partition  Like I Am Doing 100Mb Of 4 Partition In /dev/Sdb

Now Do The Coading Of Raid-1

# mdadm –create /dev/md0 –Level=1 –Raid-devices-2 /Dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb2 –spare-devices=2 /dev/sdb3 /dev/sdb4
# mdamdm –detail /dev/md0 {To Check The /dev/md0 Is Created Or Not}

Now If Our 1 Hard Disk Is Crashed Or Damage Then One Of The spare Devices Is Come To The Active Devices

Now I Am Going To Fault The 1 Hard Disk Like /dev/sdb1 Then 1 spare device Come To The Place Of Active device Without Getting Any Data Loss

# mdadm /dev/md0 –fail /dev/sdb1

This Is The Command Of Falling the 1 HardDisk
