    Just wanted to say thank you to Mark.

    Good write up, and easy to follow!

    I know when my team first set up storage spaces with tiered NVMe and spinning drives, it was hard to find this information to prep for the inevitable failure. Now I can just link to this, ha!

    Keep the tips and tricks flowing.

    Glad it's useful to your team. Unlike the traditional storage appliance which has the guidance for the redundancy and high availability, people may not pay much attention to that in the Software Defined Storage. I running into operational issues and looks like it's a good idea to share with the community. :)

    Is there a way to do this by removing the failed drive first? Some systems may not have an available slot to put in the new drive first. What if the failed drive doesn't even show up anymore (IOW, the drive doesn't show up to the host but is physically there)? Would one be able to replace the drive in that case?
