Hi all,

I have a Server setup (3 nodes) all with rpool under ZFS raid 0, 2 Disks but in the 3rd server the disks are HDD. The other 2 machines which are my main Servers are setup with SSD 1TB.
Now I received an email with error as below:
This message was generated by the smartd daemon running on:

host name: Elpis3
DNS domain: group.local

The following warning/error was logged by the smartd daemon:

Device: /dev/sdb [SAT], 2 Offline uncorrectable sectors

Device info:
WDC WD5000AAKS-75V0A0, S/N:WD-WCAWF0205950, WWN:5-0014ee-1579a1416, FW:05.01D05, 500 GB

For details see host's SYSLOG.

You can also use the smartctl utility for further investigation.
The original message about this issue was sent at Fri Feb 21 14:56:58 2020 EET
Another message will be sent in 24 hours if the problem persists.

Now I tried to:
Add an extra HDD so I can swap the sdb with sdc (no luck)
tried to remove the sdb completly but Proxmox opened to (initramfs) prompt.

Is there any other solution so to remove and swap the damaged disk?
Just for your info, due to HDD errors, I removed completly the 3rd node from cluster and I re-installed the OS with new disks under ZFS, RAID0.
Please mark the thread as closed.
