Hi,

 

On our dev environnement, we have a clone server with a Promise FastTrak
Tx2000 Pata Raid Card

 

When we installed freebsd, it got detected and I didn't do anything special
during the installation.

 

Yesterday, a hard drive failed. Freebsd crashed with write errors on screen.
I rebooted and removed the hard drive marked as dead in the raid controller.

 

Freebsd booted up no problem, but I lost a couple of tables in some
databases in mysql.

 

Is there anything I forgot/did wrong to get into this problem ? or is it
just that these controllers are so crappy that explain the corruption ?

 

I more used to scsi hardware raid controllers in freebsd and never had a
data corruption problem before even when disk died or because we hot-removed
them.

 

Any idea ?
