Subject:   What if Drive ad0 fail?

Was wondering what if one drive failed does the gmirror still work and will it alert you to replace?

For example. if ad0 failed. does ad2 take over until you replace ad0? or visa versa? Kinda like a RAID CARD where one drive fail you can rebuild it thru the RADI CARD interface.

How does the gmirror replace the drive? can someone explain the process to replace a bad HD in the future?
