comment “Spare” disk in a 2-disk mdadm RAID1 array?
hmm, SMART was telling me for a while that my disk was running at 192 degrees Celcius, looks like a few other errors got lost in the wash of dumb messages over the years. It doesn't look too severe, I'm duplicating the LVs with ddrescue now, creating a new RAID array... it looks like if the data moves smoothly, I'll need another replacement disk.

It looks like the kernel route would need a custom kernel for Debian Squeeze LTS, so... trying a hunch. The partitions are identically sized to the byte, but maybe between GPT and 4096 byte physical sectors, there could be a slightly different usage of data... I recreated the partition and added 200M, I also turned down the logging on iptables and it's running again. Will know if it worked tonight.

dmesg is overrun with some iptables messages, I've got it logging some firewall stuff. Syslog has a pair of repeating messages. I'm including them in the question, along with a link which discusses them... I might need a kernel upgrade. I do have some odd hardware for an older kernel.

I removed the failed disk and replaced it, this is the result afterwards. Two of the three partitions on the disk properly resynced.

I replaced the disk already, this is the outcome after trying to rebuild. I can remove and re-add, it takes about 6 hours, then quietly returns to this state. I've done that twice.

comment HPUX Logging Logins
It's a shame it's so complex. I guess I'll have to hack something together with last, lastb, logger, awk and cron or tail. Brutal. Our wtmp and btmp files seem to be corrupt too... got to love commercial UNIX. I really appreciate the insight, just disappointed there isnt a "log to syslog" option I missed.
