Hardware raid ?  then why are we using mdadm ?

And it's better to replace the disk asap anyway before the second disc 
gets into trouble considering the importance of valstar.

or did you mean hotswap when you talked about hardware raid above ?
(if so we could be nice to mdadm and fail the disk before it gets removed)

But we also should replace the failing disc in ecosse, preferrably by a 
raid1 (+raid0) setup.  (and why not the same for jonund when "we" are on 
site anyway)

I guess this needs to be done by someone in france...
