Hi all, I have a server with a Promise TX2000 controller; I use ataraid 
in linux 2.4.26, so my partitions are accessible 
under /dev/ataraid/d0pX. Now SMARTd is finding some errors on one of 
the disks, so I want to replace it, but... how does the raid restore 
work? If I halt the machine, replace the disk and reboot, will the 
array be put in sync? Or what should I do after repartitioning the 

Thanks in advance, ciao
