@Cmjohnson : it was suggested (@Volans) to try to remove and re-insert /dev/sdc physically. Could you do that?

It looks like we have a 3To seagate drive in spares that might work as a replacement if remove / reinsert does not work. This server is planned for reimaging anyway (T151326).

There is no high value data or traffic on those servers, so playing a bit with this disk is low risk.

Change 335776 had a related patch set uploaded (by Gehel):
relforge - switch master to relforge1002

Change 335776 merged by Gehel:
relforge - switch master to relforge1002

Note to @Cmjohnson: before shutting down relforge1001 for maintenance, shards should be drained from it with es-tool ban-node This can take a few hours. Ping me so that we can plan this operation if needed.

A ticket has been created with HP support. I will update task as more information becomes available.

@Cmjohnson most probably a stupid question, but why doesn't the serial number shown by smartctl matches the one listed in the ticket? (/me obviously does not know enough about disk and support, but is willing to learn).

@Gehel not sure why it doesn't show on smartctl but I did hdparm and it shows. I need it for the ticket to HP.

Disks should hopefully shit today or first thing tomorrow.

the new disk is on-site please let me know when ready to swap out.

Relforge1001 is being drained right now, it should be ready in a few hours. Do you need to shut it down? Or is it a hot plug switch? In any case, just ping me before doing it so that I can keep an eye on things... but all should be good!

it's a hot swap disk. I will update the task once it swapped so you can
rebuild the raid.

I'll actually just reimage the machine (it is due for a reimage), but same result.

The disk has been swapped...ready for re-install----resolving this task
