Response to: What if one of the drives fail?

Actually "man gmirror" has some easy to follow examples if a drive fails. While I haven't had a drive fail, in my testing I physically removed a drive and the rebooted OS kept perking along. I then replaced the drive with an empty one and was successfully able to restore the mirror. One of those things that is better to try once on a test system rather than wait until an emergency :-)
