Hot disk replacement does not start syncing on ReadyNas Pro 6 running 4.2.30

Hot disk replacement does not start syncing on ReadyNas Pro 6 running 4.2.30

I have a RAID 6 volume using 6 x 3TB disks.

One disk was giving lots of SMART errors so I proactively removed the disk and replaced it with a new disk.

I get DISK REMOVED and NEW DISK ADDED, ARRAY WILL BE REBUILT warnings. However, I do not get any sign of a resync.

I've left it for 3 days and no sign.

I've pulled the drive and added it again. Same warnings, but no sign of a resync.

Unfortunately my warranty expired in August last year so no support!

How do I manually start this process?

 

Thanks Ferg

I found a similar post where they added the disk manually. Mine is also out of warranty, and I've messed with mdadm a lot, so what the hell!

They copied the PAT from a working disk, then manually added each partition to the approriate RAID device.

 

sgdisk /dev/sda -R /dev/sdd
fdisk /dev/sdd
sgdisk -G /dev/sdd
mdadm --manage /dev/md0 --add /dev/sdd1
cat /proc/mdstat
mdadm --manage /dev/md1 --add /dev/sdd2
cat /proc/mdstat
mdadm --manage /dev/md2 --add /dev/sdd3
cat /proc/mdstat
