Description of problem:
the man page for raidhotgenerateerror is missing in the raidtools rpm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install raidtools-0.90-24
2. rpm -ql raidtool|grep raidhotgenerateerror
Actual Results: /sbin/raidhotgenerateerror
Expected Results: /sbin/raidhotgenerateerror
work around until this bug is fixed:
contains the man page.
This man page is quite important as it seems to be the only way to simulate a
drive failure without ripping the drive out. AFAIK raidhotremove will refuse to
work if the drive to be removed is not considered 'failed'
N.B.: the man page is also missing in the latest rpm (internal server, checked
not only that, but raidhotadd, raidhotremove, raidsetfaulty all do not have good
contains relevant pages in section 8.
raidhotgenerateerror is deprecated, the functionality is no longer in the
kernel. I've removed the manpage but the utility itself is still present. The
raidsetfaulty utility should be used to simulate RAID disk errors.
problem: today's most current released version of raidtools for RHL 7.2 is
0.90-24 and does not include raidsetfaulty.
will there be an errata of raidtools that includes raidsetfaulty?
The utilities from Red Hat Linux 7.1 miss these utilities/manpages as well.
Using newer kernels need the newer tools.
Upgrading to the raidtools from Red Hat Linux 7.3 works around this.
