What is least painful way to replace landing zone drive?

Postby jkbuckethead » Fri Jan 26, 2018 1:01 pm

I recently upgraded a couple of drives with larger drives. This process went smooth enough, but while it was going on I had a monitor attached to my HDA. The monitor is displaying quite a few errors associated with my landing zone drive. So far overall operation doesn't seem to be affected, but there could be corrupted files I haven't yet discovered. These errors do not appear in the greyhole log or when I'm connected using Putty. I only see them when I've connected a monitor directly. I don't know if errors like this are normal or what.

Anyway, this got me thinking about replacing the landing zone drive before it dies unexpectedly. I have a dedicated landing zone drive so I don't have any OS or other files to worry about. The landing drive contains only my share directories plus a /gh directory with one file named greyhole_uses_this. Is it simple as adding the replacement disc, moving/copying the land zone, changing the share paths, and then removing the old LZ drive?

They way I see it, the greyhole --going command is only necessary when removing drives from the pool. Since the LZ drive is not part of the pool, is there anything special that I need to do before removing the old LZ drive?
