    I got 2 emails from server

    First one says: SMART error (OfflineUncorrectableSector) detected on host
    Code:
    This email was generated by the smartd daemon running on:
    
       host name: xxx.winhostings.com
      DNS domain: winhostings.com
      NIS domain: (none)
    
    The following warning/error was logged by the smartd daemon:
    
    Device: /dev/sda, 1 Offline uncorrectable sectors
    
    For details see host's SYSLOG (default: /var/log/messages).
    
    You can also use the smartctl utility for further investigation.
    No additional email messages about this problem will be sent.

    All of my servers have seagate hdd. So, just bought 22 500gb WD blue caviar today.

    Most of my customers have dedicated server and they have no raid-1(just single hdd)

    Q-1 How can i add/replace new hdd without shutdown servers?
    Q-2 If it is not possible then how can i add new hdd with raid-1?
    Q-3 If do i have to shutdown system and add new hdd and set it up through BIOS to Raid-1 will i lost any data(i guess my customers will say Okay for shutting down server for 10-15 minutes)

    Thanks for any help
    Regards

    **** WARNING ****

    STAY AWAY SEAGATE HDD. I AM FACING PROBLEM WITH SEAGATE 5TH TIMES BY NOW AND ONCE I LOST ENTIRE ALBUM/VIDEO OF MY SON FOR HIS FIRST 2 YEARS WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE TO COVER THAT LOST.

    I BOUGHT 22 NEW HDD(ABOUT $1000) FOR REPLATE ENTIRE SERVERS

    **** WARNING ****

    You'd do better to speak with your provider about this. What you're asking about has nothing to do with cPanel, but the server cPanel runs on. Your server provider knows what to do with HDDs I'm sure.
